Hi everyone.

Hope you're all enjoying your Sunday  Over here it's almost bedtime, but before I go to sleep I want to post my card that I've made following the current sketch over at the Retrosketches Blog.  

Here is the sketch:

and it might be difficult to see, but I did start off from the sketch, and created this card:

I have moved the panel slightly to the right and the middle part is a piece of diagonally striped dp that I've covered with vellum and dry wall tape.  I've added a border punched strip on foam tape.  The flower I've done with cs and vellum.  Both the flower and flourish dies are from the Die-namics range by MFT.  The Afrikaans sentiment says: 'Congratulations'.  Added some twine again, some washi tape and rhinestones to finish it off.  The dp is from Teresa Collins.

Not much more to say about this card so I'll love you and leave you with that!

Till next time
