Sweet Sketch Wednesday

I don't want to go to work today boo!  I've had a lovely long weekend and got loads of DT work done (and some housework too!).  One of the cards I made this weekend is a just because card.  I don't often get a chance to make these so really do enjoy having a wee while to please myself.  I loved the sketch on Sweet Sketch Wednesday and ended up with this card.

The papers are Tilda (Kitchen Garden I think) that the lovely Mina sent me – how kind to part with some of these delish papers, thanks sweetie mwah xx and the Tilda stamp is a surprise gift from Jacqui, more mwah’s xx.  I was hyperventilating whilst cutting these papers – I even got a reaction from my hubby lol, talk about breaking out in a cold sweat!

The sentiments are Magnolia and also Stampin Up, the ribbon is from Craft Fairy and the rhinestone ribbon slider is from The Hobby House.  I have used a MS punch for the border, and a SU word window punch for the sentiment.  The image has been coloured with copics (numbers at the end of the post).  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the leaves I made by folding some of the waste green card in half and cutting leaf shapes, not very inventive lol.
