Dreams

Morning Custard Lovers!

Over at Sketch Saturday this week, we're delighted to be sponsored by Mo's Digital Pencil. And if that's not enough to tempt you to join the fun, just take a look at the belting Sketch Jo has created for us to play with:


I don't mind telling you that the first time I saw this sketch I was a bit worried about what I was going to do with it. But several jellybeans later, the sugar kicked in and I was inspired to think outside of my comfort zone and try something a little different...


Whaddayathink?

I've used a sentiment from an Inspiration Kit from The Creative Cottage, which has sadly ceased trading now. The 38mm Striped Grosgrain Ribbon is from Sew Sweet. There are three other colours available if Celery doesn't float your boat!

Well, you've seen my card, but don't forget to take a look at the fabby work from the rest of The Saturdays.

Have a great weekend. :)

Recipe
Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Dutch Mustard, Jillibean Soup; My Mum's Craft Shop
Sentiment: Inspiration Kit; Creative Cottage which has sadly ceased trading :(
Corner Flourish; Lili of the Valley
Other: 38mm Celery Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon; Sew Sweet

Thank goodness for those jelly beans. You did a wonderful job and I think that you would have done even with no jelly beans. Love it! :) x
