I struggled ……

Morning peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

Well I have to confess that I struggled a bit with this card – not sure why really. I did the sketch ages ago and I remember thinking that I was pleased with it, but when I came to do it, the old mojo just went awol – what a pain!!!

Anyway, it’s the sketch for this week’s Papertake Weekly challenge which is sponsored by the one and only Simon Says Stamp


… so there’s a fab prize up for grabs. And I have to say that the DT did a brilliant job with the sketch cos the cards are just fabulous, and all so very different which I like :)

So, this …

sketch #52

… is the old sketchie, and this ….

… is what I did with it.

Please excuse the awful pics today peeps but the light here is practically non existent – grrrr!!!!

The cutesy Lili Of The Valley image (it’s from the Love & Romance release) was coloured with Copics in these colours -

Skin: E00, E21, R20, R11

Hair: E11, E35, E42, E50

Clothes etc: BG93, C00, C1, G21, G94, R85, RV0000, RV00, RV10, YG67, YG91

The pretty papers are of course from Pink Petticoat and I used Pretty Little Hearts, Gingham and Doodle Dots in Pretty (just for a change, I know but I LOVE that soft and chalky pink).  The sentiment was chopped from a PP sentiment ribbon and I snuck in Lord Timmie’s scalloped die again.

  Have you seen the new Perfect Papers mini btw? Oh soooo gorge and pretty they are  :)

But I digress!!

I just had to use shed loads of beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts blooms, and the self adhesive rhinestones are also WOC :)

Hugs to all xxx

sed a darker green with pink I normally go for pastels, I may just have to run across to WOC now for some of those dark green cherry blossom (as if I didn't have enough lol!) Hugs Rebekah xx

Ditto to what Jane said.
Your work is always tops, but I do understand that some cards take such along time and then we finally finish and say to ourselves, is this it after all the time and effort. lol
Gorgeous as always.
