CLP Sketch #49

It's a busy day for me today, this is the first of three posts, I hope you come back and see the rest. It's the first of the month so there is a brand new challenge at CLP Challenge and Chelsea has come up with an amazing sketch, again.

Here's my card,

following this sketch,

A great sketch isn't it? I've said before, I love following a great sketch as the card just materialises in front of your eyes, lol. I've coloured Waterlily Tilda in with my Distress Markers, I just wish I could get them to blend how I like on a smoother paper, but I still love them, lol. The paper is from Maja Design, again-I can't get enough of these beauties. I've distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz tool and then machine sewn them using The Ribbongirls top stitching thread.

The flowers are from WOC, the spikey one is from Kort and Godt, thanks Mary :) The lace along the bottom is from The Ribbon Girl.

The sketch challenge is open for a whole month, please pop over to CLP and have a peek at what the DT have come up with, they are amazing.

I'm entering this card into MDUC's Shabby Chic challenge, and Deep Ocean Challenge's Welcome Summer challenge.
I'll be back soon with some more.
