You've got Mail.......






This image is another from Sassy Cheryl called 'Special Delivery' and I thought I'd use it for the second challenge which this week is a sketch.


I chose a sheet of double sided dp from heidi grace design and matched it with American Crafts card in Blueberry, Wine and some Bazzill Basics Rosebud.
A Fiskars apron lace punch was used to punch out the edge of one piece of Blueberry matt.

I sized and printed out the digital image and coloured it using Prisma Pencils and Gamsol.

I've added three flowers punched using an EK Success Retro Flower punch in medium and small and I'm sad to say I've used for the last time my McGill Pine punch.........it's always been a stiff punch to use and sadly I broke it today! The flowers have Plum Kaisercraft pearls for the centres, I also added two more pearls to complete my card.


Thanks for dropping by till next time............
