Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sketch

This week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is a sketch by me:


I've used an adorable Lili of the Valley image on my card called 'Thomas - Big Bunch of Flowers'...and I thought that the gorgeous flowery papers from the 'Kioshi' pad by BasicGrey (available here at the Secret Crafter) would be the perfect match for his bouquet. I embossed one the plain sheets from the pad using my Cuttlebug 'Just My Type' folder (available here at the Secret Crafter), then sanded the surface to reveal the white core. I distressed all of the edges...just a little...and added a sentiment (from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by SImon Says Stamp) to the centre of a paper flower from Poppicrafts. I used Nesties to cut the circles & blossom shape (available here at the Secret Crafter).


For more inspiration...check out the fabulous creations by my lovely DT buddies at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

I've have candy on offer at the moment...if you haven't already entered, you can find all of the details on this post.

I love the papers on your card, they look so good together, and Thomas is so cute!
