Papertake Weekly - Dawny's Sketch 30th June

Good morning to all my lovely blogging buddies, sorry I have been awol for the last couple of days...we went away for the weekend to Scotland to attend a family wedding and I seem to have hit the ground running since we got back. Sophie thoroughly relished her role as a flower girl and once I have taken the piccies off the camera I'll post some on here for you! I did get a bit emotional when she came down the aisle scattering was a really proud Mummy moment lol!

Anyhoo, I managed to knock this card together last night despite the heat and a huge pile of's for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge and they have another sketch by Dawny! I've used a digi downloaded design paper...its the pretty floral paper and it's from PC Crafter The plain papers have been embossed with a CB embossing folder, the stamped sentiment was a freebie with a craft magazine and the gems and ribbon are from my craft stash. The flowers as always have been created with an X-Cut flower punch. I hope to get round to visiting all your blogs on Friday....tonight we are going to watch Sophie's school concert and she is in the orchestra...can't wait to see what they play!
