A spoon full of sugar

Morning everyone
Here is my card for this weeks a spoon full which was a gorgeous sketch by Debbie . There is a fabulous prize up for grabs this week including a Whiff of Joy stamp and don't forget you can now use any stamp you like.

I was going to do a completely different card, when I read on Jacqui's blog, the sketch was a good way to use up scraps and then I remembered I had these 2 squares of gorgeous paper somewhere at the bottom of the drawer, thanks Jacqui, for jogging my memory!

I really like the way it all turned out

Here are the details
  • Image: Sweet Ebony 'giddy up' from Sugar Nellie
  • Medium: Watercolour pens
  • Paper: Crate paper (I think!) and the stripe one I don't know (gosh I'm rubbish with the names of papers!!)
  • Sentiment: Studio g
  • Flowers, brads, button and ribbon from stash

Thanks for looking, I have to work today, so will be back later with a bit of blog catchup

Have a super day
