2 in 1 challenge with a little help from Marlene

Morning everyone,
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are fighting fit this Monday morning.

I'm really late this week with my entry for a spoon full as my inspiration had just totally gone AWOL and I couldn't think of anything to use as 'recycle'.
In the end I went for a ribbon which I cut from an old shop bought card, a flower from an artificial flower bunch and the sentiment is cut from a piece of vellum I used for a wedding card, so I actually managed to recycle 3 things, small as they are.

I have based this card on a sketch from the extremely talented Marlene and although I haven't used an oval, I think the foundations are there, it was a super sketch to work with, thanks a bunch Marlene. I used this gorgeous hAngler stamp which fits perfectly with the theme on CCT which is 'the two of us'.
  • Image: hAngler and stAngler
  • Paper: BG and I don't know
  • Medium: Watercolour pens
  • Sentiment, ribbon and flower - recycled

Thanks for looking, I'll be back later with a lovely award I received
