Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 43...Sketch

Morning gang, I'm up early this morning as I am helping out at work with our annual charity sale...last year we raised about £16,000 for the Arthiritus Foundation and we hope to top that this will be a frantic morning but should be over by about 1pm and then it will be home to craft...hopefully!

We have a new challenge for you on the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge blog and this weeks theme has been chosen by my lovely DT buddy Jill and she has created the most fantastic SKETCH to follow...I loved using your sketch Jill and I hope you don't mind but I have rotated mine as it fitted my image better this way! I've used this rather gorgeous Greeting Farm Anya called 'Pretty Hat' and I have coloured her in using PM's! The design papers are a digi download from Sweet Shoppe Designs and its a Zoe Pearn kit called 'Sugar & Spice'! The dark maroon card stock is SU and the ribbon, gems and pearls are from my craft stash! I think you probs all know how I created my flowers lol!

I hope you can come and join us for this weeks challenge, I loved visiting everyone's blogs last week to see the creations using my 'recipe' and I so look forward to seeing what you do with Jill's sketch! Pop over and see the DT creations...they're amazing!
