Ladybugandfriends - Sketch Challenge...

Hello,

Today is the start of a challenge on Ladybugandfriends blogspot. We have been given a wonderful sketch by the amazingly talented  Gry-Heidi to follow. I loved this Gry-Heidi so thank you so much!



I have coloured my Ladybugandfriends Elisabeth Bell image with distress ink pads. The background has been distressed with vintage photo. The stickles I have added are star dust. The leaves are die cut using quickutz and I have distressed these and everything on my card with vintage photo.

Here is Gry-Heidi's sketch.



If you would like to join in with us we would be thrilled. All you have to do is follow this sketch and leave a comment on the Ladybugandfriends blog post. Please leave a link to your card. You have until the 11th of September and Linda will have a prize for the lucky winner who will be picked on the 12th!



Thank you so much for looking and I wish you all a wonderful day!

love
