Sketchy Free For All

Hello everyone, hope you all had a great week-end with lots of crafting thrown in!..  Whooo!! I'm feeling quiet happy today, I managed to order some lovely paper pads from LOTV yesterday, had a bit of a struggle at first trying to get on the site.. gave up and tried a bit later, really thought I would miss out again lol!! But NO.. they still had some stock!!  Can't wait for Mr. Postie to arrive now lol!!

My card today is for 'Papertake Weekly' which is a lovely sketch challenge. You can use any sketch as long as it is one of the Papertake sketches.  I chose to use sketch #80. The nice thing about sketches is they give you a good starting point, especially when Mr. Mojo has gone walk about, I love using them.  I really enjoyed making this card, the flowers were cut out with a Joy Die, really want to have a go at making some flowers, I have some gorgeous dies which I haven't known how to use properly so have been on the internet for some tutorials, so watch this space lol!!..   The gorgeous hearts are a Marianne die and I have ruffed up all the black card with some sand paper and scissors, the card is by Tim Holtz and is a dream to use for this sort of thing.  The gorgeous papers are from LOTV designed by Mary Fran.  The image is from one of LOTV art pads.

This is the sketch which I turned around so that the side was at the top
