Saturday Sketchers Meets Raspberry Ribbons xx

Here's my card for this weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge.
This weeks sketch is pretty fabulous I have to say, and one I will use again.

I am so loving my new Fall Tildas - thanks Marlene xxx - coloured with Pro Markers natch, and I thought that this time I would use some of the new Raspberry Ribbons kit which is just fabulous. The lighting is not great in this picture and you cannot really tell that the wide ribbon across the centre is the most gorgeous deep plum colour. Honestly, I drooled when I saw it xx

That big beautiful chipboard flower is included in this kit and I covered it with PP Mini Little Big Dots.

The other paper is also PP and the MSBP got an airing as well - just for a change!!!

I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday and that the weather is as nice for you as it is here. I am a bit sad though cos Richard is away this week (work - he leaves in about an hour) and won't be back until Friday. The only other time he has been away was in 2003 when he had to go to Le Francais for 3 days, so I will miss the old sod and can't wait for him to come back, even though he hasn't actually left yet !!!

I am off to M & S now for some comfort food to get me through the next few days so enjoy the rest of the weekend xxxxx
