Hello, all you lovely peeps!
Well as promised I'm back today with a card for a few challenges. I'm really pleased with how this card turned out because as I started making it I wasn't too keen lol. This is my absolute fave LOTV image and when I saw this weeks LOTV challenge - I believe in Fairies, I just had to dig her out! I'm not usually a fan of sketches because I don't like the restriction but I really enjoyed using the fab sketch over at Cute Card Thursday this week,so much so I plan to use it again for my next card.I love seeing how using different images,papers etc can make a card look so different when you use the same layout. I've used some lovely papers from a Dovecraft Back to Basics paper pack and so I am also entering my card into this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge which is Pale  Pretty Pastels.
Well that's it from me today, I've had a busy day and I'm worn out lol, so off to make me a cuppa and catch up with all your lovely blogs :)
Enjoy your evenings xx

I have used one of the gorgeous LOTV die cut images and the paper's are an old Making Memories 6x6 pad, the sentiment is craftwork cards, the adhesive stones are papermania, ribbon is from poppicrafts and ofcourse Handstitching.
