Sketches! {by Tamara}

Happy Thursday to you all! The sun was shining here yesterday, a glorious day........let's hope they stay like that for a while, and i'm loving the lighter evenings too!

Whatever the weather is doing, you can always guarantee that Thursday brings another great sketch over at Sketches! This week the sketch instantly hit the right buttons with me and i knew exactly how i was going to play it........don't you love it when that happens? :)
Love this paper! It's from the Autumn Leaves 'French Twist' collection by Rhonna Farrer. I have some of this collection left in my stash luckily, but i will be sorry once it's gone! The sentiment is chipboard, from K&Co and sits so well with the colours in the paper.

I was a bit harsh with my flowers and chopped them in half!!............. think they still look pretty though :) The pink portion at the top of my card is printed acetate, also from the FT collection as is the white lined piece backing it.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and would love you to join us this week if you can! Be sure to check out the work from the other DT girls and don't forget to let us know if you make a card with the sketch, we can come and have a nosy at your creation!! ;-D
