Sketch Saturday #15

Morning everyone,

First of all I want to say a huge thankyou to everyone who took part in last weeks SS, made some gorgeous cards, left lovely comments and altogether made my first DT week a truly memorable one....big hugs to you all

So it's another week at Sketch Saturday and Jo has created another fabulous sketch and my fellow DT members have created some real beauties.

This week we have a fabulous prize up for grabs courtesy of Emma at Sassy Crafts. She has kindly donated a Sarah Kay if you needed an extra reason to join in....hop over now to the blog for all the details

Also one of my fellow DT members Mariska has reached 1000 hits in just one month...yeah Mariska....and is celebrating by offering blog candy associated with this weeks more opportunity to win a prize.....join might just win them all!!!!

Anyway here are the details of my card
  • Image: Sweet Ebony 'picking apples' from Sugar Nellie
  • Paper: Scrapbook pack from Partners (the stationary shop)
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Sentiment: Studio G
  • Flowers, brads and gems from stash

The frame around the image was an afterthought, which is why its slightly covering the image, but I think it looks ok. Flowers using the punch I won in Hannes blog candy

Thanks for looking, have a super day, feel free to leave a comment so I know you were here

Good luck to everyone

Oh holy macarony, Gill, what a fantastic card!!! Loved the way you've made a frame with the flowers around the circle, looks like the image is cut out, brilliant idea, wich will be lifted, for sure :)
