Hi everyone!

Not that much time left to join in the fun over at the Retrosketches Blog.

This is what the fun sketch for the week looks like:
And this is the card I have made:

I've used a piece of dp by Teresa Collins.  The lattice was cut with a Tim Holtz Lattice die.
The leaf stamps and dies are from the 'Turning a new Leaf' set by PTI and the 'Pennant Trim' die is from Verve.  The borderpunch is by Upikit. 
Added a clothspeg, a chipboard flower, some twine and rhinestones to finish it off.
Afrikaans sentiment saying:  'Congratulation'.

This is another card I have made using the same lo idea.
The flower and leaf stamps and dies are by PTI.

I bought some lovely scrapbooking goodies this morning, so guess what I'll be doing this weekend!!!
Can't wait to start playing with my photos!!
Thanks for the visit - always a pleasure having you here!!!
Have a great weekend!! 
Keep well!!
Kind regard

Always love to see how you turn that sketch around & make it uniquely yours. Really love the ways you've been using this new lattice die. Very pretty on #1 combined with the tiny banners, V-shape banner and the greenery trims. Of course I love the way add the vellum. #2 is another interesting & pretty card with the graphic stripe paper and then adding in the banner & pretty pastel flower against the gray stripes. Both are lovely. TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs
