Musing Melinda

I am sooo brave! I actually cut my BG Porcelain paper - I need to go lie down in a darkened room for sure lol. I loved all the layers on this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch so dug the BG papers out, took a deep breath and cut!! Not much in the way of embellies on this card, the paper was busy enough I think though I did manage to squeeze a charm on.

The inside, kept pretty simple and more or less to the sketch.
