Sketch Saturday

The top photo was taken after I realized that I had not added all the elements for the challenge....
then I just decided not to erase the first because I couldn't make my mind up which background looked best?

I paid a visit to Hillmount Nursery today and couldn't wait to get home with my new things to make this card...
I always enjoy the Sketch Saturday challenge and this one is no exception.
I had drawn the topiary rose bush earlier in the week while I was off work sick and thought my new papers were ideal for the image.The only trouble was I didn't really want to actually use the paper-just look at it!!
Anyway this is what I used; own sketch coloured with Promarkers
Papers........................Papermania...Blueberry Hill
Leaves........................Woodware punch
Lace.............................Dunelm Mill

Have a good Bank holiday weekend!, Ruth x


  1. Hi Ruth
    Beautiful colour theme and I love your hand drawn rose bush - its gorgeous! I haven't been at Hillmount nursery for such a long time and didn't realise they sold crafty stuff too! It's hard enough to get out of there without spending an absolute fortune on lovely plants, without adding crafty goodies into the mix too!

  2. Great card Ruth! I love your stamp and you did a great job with coloring.

    Hugs Karin
