...saturday morning sketch! WMSC4

ED- Huge apologies to everyone who took part in last weeks challenge, I ususally get round all the entries and leave a comment, with all that has hapened this week with the bereavement etc, I just wasn't able to manage it, but I am looking forward to getting back on track this week!

Good morning and what a stinker of a sketch we have for you this week! LOL, I must admit I was giggling as I was drawing it up! So come on...who's brave enough to have a go at this one?

I have been thrilled to see so many folks playing along with the sketches and I believe there's something extra special ablout this weeks sketch, Lisa will fill you in over on the WMS Challenge blog.

All of the deets are Here on the Challenge blog.

All of these sketches are intended to inspire so there's no need to slavishly copy the layout, footer with it, make it yours. I sneakily used a couple of stamps from upcoming sets releasing July 1st. My background patterns were made by masking off the card base into squares using post it notes and then sponging green (shabby shutters distress ink) and tan (Tea Die distress ink) and then stamping a delicate little scrollwork pattern (New stamp coming July 1st!) all over to make a background. The sentiment is from another new set.

I made a wreath from buttons and some wee flowers I had in the back of the drawer and then made some leaves by stamping more green pattern and cutting out circles with a 2 inch circle punch, I then cut bits off the circle with the same punch to get leaves.

Hope it tickles!
