Sketch Saturday #64

Hiya! it's Saturday, so must be time for a new challenge!
This weeks sketch is sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts, and you could win £15 worth of goodies of your own choice from the store! fantastic prize eh?!

Here is my card...

I love this image, it's from the 'Summer by the Sea' stamp set by Stampin Up, I've coloured it in with SU inks.
I have also used SU card stock (more mustard) and the patterned paper is also SU (so saffron)
the flowers were punched using the same DSP but instead of the floral design side, I used the polka dots side.
The leaves are Martha Stewart 'branch' punch outs which I bought off a well known auction site.
The plain brown paper, raffia and small pearls at the centre of the flowers are just from my scraps box
The sentiments - the one next to the image itself is from the same stamp set and says
"Joy is not in things, it is in us"
the 'with love' sentiment is from a different SU stamp set called 'Yummy'

I'm really happy with how this card turned out, hope you like it too.
Please go take a look at my fellow Design Team members cards and of course our Guest Designer Mina, by visiting their blogs, their work is so inspiring :)
