Sketches {by Tamara} Card

During the course of a little blog hopping last night wishing friends well for 2008, I happened upon this site, sketches, {by Tamara} via Dawn's blog. I loved Dawn's use of the sketch & needing to get some cards made for family & friends birthdays, I thought I'd do this one. I will be doing this a lot in 2008. Popping in & out of challenges when I see things I like rather than doing them just because they are there each week. I get a litttle bored otherwise!

Handmade paper from an old pack Lakeland Ltd. Flowers are a mix of Dunhelm & Scrapfairies. KAren Foster clear gem brad. Tag stamped with See D's from Garden set. All edges are inked softly with Versacolour Sky Blue ink. Unfortunately the light isn't good enough to show the true colours of this card. Im keeping some quite simple for posting this year as Xmas cost me a packet!!

fab card paula, I love the handmade paper with the flower, looks really good. I'm like you I'm just going to do the challenges I want to do, there are only so many cards you can make on the same theme. I think I might be doing a few more Gothic Arches though. Have a good day.

Very soft and simple Paula... lovely work! I know what you mean about beady bits, it's not my forte, but I do enjoy practising!! :D
