Hi everyone!!!

What a great challenge this week over at the Retrosketches Blog!!  Choose your favourite sketch from the archives and make a card following the sketch. 

Now how difficult, but great fun,  it was to choose a favourite sketch from all the lovely sketches of the past!!!  Here is the first sketch I choose:

and my card:

For my card I've used dp from the 'Summer Stories' range by Teresa Collins.
Flower dies from MFT.  Leaf stamp and die from PTI.  Arrow stamp from Verve.
The borderpunch is from Upikit.
Added some sewing and plastic dots and it was done!
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Just for You'.

I'll be back shortly with my second card!!

Thanks for popping in!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards
