Hi everyone.

I love the current sketch over at the RetroSketches Blog.
I got some lovely new patterned papers at a local craft shop today and that is what I've used for my card.
Here is my card:

and this is the sketch:

The patterned papers I've used are both by Marion Smith from the 'Garment District' and 'Nirvana' ranges. 
The swiss dot EF is by Cuttlebug and the borderpunch by Upikit. 
The dies I've used are the 'Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose' and the 'Fancy Flourish' dies from the Die-namics range by MFT.
The Afrikaans sentiment says 'Congratulations' and the stamp that I've used at the bottom of the card is from the 'Borderline' set by Verve.
I've added a twine bow, a black pearl in the centre of the flower and one black rhinestone to round it all off.

Thanks for popping in and have a lovely day!

Kind regards

Hierdie een het jou Petra stempel op. Perfek... pragtig!
En my "stamp of aproval" ook.
So mooi!

Stylvol met die visstert vlaggies Petra. Daardie blom is altyd vir my mooi wat so kenmerkend van jou kaartjies is.

Much different from the baby card, but equally awesome. Love the colors chosen, the layered banners, and that gorgeous rose. Nice view of the mountains as a beautiful background for your pretty card. TFS & Hugs

I love brown, so this card is particularly appealing. Love the design thereof Petra. Beautiful work as usual. hugs Sharon x
