Hi everyone!!!

Made a card for the current sketch challenge over at the Retro Sketches Blog, last night.
This is the sketch:  

and my take on it:

The chevron paper is from Glitz Design and the music paper from Teresa Collins.
Daisy and flourish dies from MFT.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations', heat embossed on the vellum. 
Added a paper clip, some rhinestones and black plastic dots and it was done.

Thanks for the visit - always a pleasure to have you here!!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards

This is such a great take on the retro sketch! Love that sweet little paper clip and gotta love the chevrons!

Soooooo very, very pretty! Each time I visit your blog, I find that I spend hours and hours (okay...that might be a bit of a stretch) devouring the elements of your design and the perfect placement of the pretty accent pieces. This card is no exception - it is stunning! Love the fabulous pops of yellow!

This one was a hard sketch, but you made it look easy! Love the chevron stripes and the layered flower with the flourish. The vellum is a nice touch.

So very pretty, Petra ... the sunny yellow bloom and paperclip are such fabulous accents with the neutral colour palette ... and I love those shiny wee bling drops! Have a great weekend! Anita :)
