DT card for Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge #112

Good Morning everyone
I hope that you all had a good weekend.

Today is the start of a new Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge.
This week we are onto sketch number 8 and the wonderful Julie has chosen the optional theme of distressing.

For this challenge we are sponsored by 
(please see challenge blog for details of the fab prize)

I decided to make a Get Well card -  always handy to have as you never know when you may need one.
The gorgeous papers I have used are some that I bought ages ago and my Martha Stewart punch rarely gets used now I tend to use dies which are better for cutting out thicker card.



Here is the sketch for you to follow for the next 2 weeks


Items Used :
Digi Stamp - Floppy Latte Roses coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Glitz Designs Pretty in Pink available @ MCH
Memory Box Madera Corner available @ MCH 
Sentiment - LOTV Vintage occasion
Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles
Dienamis Crochet border
Martha Stewart Monach Butterfly punch
Seam binding from stash

If you take a look at the Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of the Design Team and see the winners of the last challenge


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Allsorts -Passion for Flowers
Brown Sugar  - Get Well
Card Makin' Mamas - Ribbon
Paper Crafting Journey -Use a Sentiment
Simply Create Too - use your stash ( old papers and butterfly punch)
Paper Shelter - Make it Bloom
Fussy and Fancy - Vintage
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Colour



Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comment you may wish to make.
Bye for now
hugs 
Sue
