Sweet Friends

You know how you start blog hopping and can't believe where you've ended up?  I started that yesterday and so stumbled upon a wonderful challenge blog called Moving Along With The Times where I found a really good sketch challenge, which I couldn't resist having a go at. 
First of all, here is the sketch they want us to use:

I find sketches really inspiring and think I really ought to put a 'sketchbook' together that I can flip through when I'm a bit stuck.  Basically, they're saying 'make a card that looks like this', so I have:

The image is from Lili Of The Valley and the background papers are from Basic Grey Lemonade range.  I originally bought these as they were featured in a magazine article I really liked, but when they arrived they were completely different, so whatever they used in the magazine it certainly wasn't these!  Of course, by then I was stuck with them, but I'm pleased to have been able to put them to good use and now have hardly any left.  The scalloped card is from Little Claire's Designs (I am loving these) and the sentiment is Craftwork Cards.
It's only just dawned on me that this is a weekly challenge, so I'd better pop it on quickly, hadn't I?!
Have a great day everyone
Mrs O.
