A DIE FOR A SKETCH

Afternoon Everyone

I am pleased to report that I've finished my 'proper' work for this week so yippee a bit more crafty time for me!

One of my work colleagues will be celebrating her first wedding anniversary soon and once again I'm loving the Lily of The Valley images.  Their romantic collection of images are simply perfect for this type of occasion.  I also stumbled across a beautiful sketch challenge at A Die for a Sketch Challenge which I think fits the image well so I'm going to enter that one and see how it goes.

Don't know about you but following the layouts provided on these challenges is wonderful.  Left to my own devices I'd probably use the same handful of layouts but now I'm consciously looking around for a sketch to adopt and loving it...I even think I go to sleep dreaming of layouts I've seen!  Is that a bit mad?  Perhaps I should see the Dr!

Here's my card anyway.



Here's the sketch I've followed
