Sketch n Stash....

Morning peeps, wow what a week of horrible weather, so many floods, great for spending time crafting though, I have managed to get quite a few DT projects done these past few days, so it makes quite a change for me to be ahead rather than last minute crafting.
Today's card is for the new challenge at Sketch n Stash, I did make a mistake with the dates which is why we have a new challenge starting today......bit of a numpty.


we are being sponsored by Live & Love Crafts
So love the goodies that Sandi sells, if you love vintage this on line shop is well worth a look, 
I've got my eyes on some gorgeous lace that she is now stocking


For my card I used an image and papers by Maya design called Vintage Autumn Basics, the embossed frame is  something I purchased ages ago, I cut out the centre and mounted the image behind, I then layered up some more pansies and added the sweet bird which I had dry brushed with Treasure Gold, colour White Fire. I then realised that the main image was probably too big for the 6x6 card so I then thought I'd make an easel card but I wanted the frame to stand more forward, so I put a hinge on the back so that it stands proud of the background. 






Christmas tree decs. are all away until later this year,
back to work .......when my next holiday!!!!
hugs n smiles
