Ria's DT week (and some thanks)

It's time for another challenge over at Sketch Saturday, and this weeks sketch is FANTASTIC!
Ria, I don't know why you said you weren't a sketch artist, I think your sketch is sooooo beautiful!
Ria's DT week is being sponsored by Funky Fairys Papercrafts & Shaz is offering one of her fabulous downloadable papers as a prize for one of you lucky challengers. Thank you Shaz! xx

It's also time for a new guest designer!! Shary has very kindly agreed to join us for the next 2 weeks.

Here is my card this week...

I have used goodies that my fellow DT members have given me for my birthday last week.

The image, given to me by Jeanette is Willow with Hot Chocolate from Whiff of Joy, coloured with stampin spots and a blender pen. Jeanette also gave mesome metal charms and a pack of pretty pearls, some of which are also added to this card. All sent in an adorable handmade giftbag :)
I used my stylised flowers cuttlebug folder on the pale geeen cardstock.
The flowers were all given to me by Tracie, who I think gave me her entire flower collection as the bag she sent was crammed with them, she also sent me loads of ribbons too!
The sentiment is hand written.

Thank you also to Mandy, Sandra & Mariska for the stunning cards, Mariska also sent me some fantastic images and another WoJ stamp for my collection, Herb with bird, how lucky am I eh?!

I had a lovely birthday, my lounge is decorated with beautiful handmade cards, many of which came from my lovely friends over at Auntys, thank you all so much xx
