Sketch Saturday #46

WOW!! what a fabby response to Tracie's sketch last week on Sketch Saturday!! not surprising though, because her sketch was fantastic! Thank you Tracie xx

Onto this week, and it's sketch #46 already :0
will soon be Sketch Saturday's first birthday! ;)
This week, our sponsor is Thread-Bare a website for craft goodies and a place to buy beautiful handmade cards and gifts.

Here is my card for this weeks sketch...

The beautiful Sarah Kay image is coloured with watercolour pencils.
I can't remember where I got the patterned paper from, sorry.
The card base is by stampin up, as is the lighter, vertical strip, which has been embossed with my paisley cuttlebug folder. I used that particular folder because it echoes the paisley stamp, also coloured in with watercolour pencils, that I have used for the leaves behind the flower.
I have added a few beads to a chain and hung them from the centre of the flower.
The 'special friend' tag and 'happy birthday' sentiments are both by Stamps Away.
The ribbons and gems from my stash.

Thanks for looking, have a lovely weekend and a very Happy Easter.

Jo xx
