Mo's Challenge #27 - A Sketch

Mo's Challenge Team have a fabulous sketch this week - I just love sketches - the variety of ways they are used always astounds me!!!

I've been wanting to use this gorgeous Bridal image for a while now - I have a few weddings coming up so thought I'd make a start on the cards! I thought the beautiful lines of her gown just needed to be paired with simple elegant colours and textures so she's still the focal point. I hope I've achieved that.

I have to thank the inspirational Norma for her tutorial on using border punches for framing - check it out HERE. I wasn't sure this one would work but I'm rapt with the result! You never know until you try!

The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory - there are roses, ribbon, cuttlebug folder and I've used my markers to colour...

Wow, that is sensational...both the card and that cool border technique!!! I've gotta try that!

I just downloaded a sweet new image from Mo. If I hurry, I might get it in on time...if I could get myself going. I'm a mess... just finally took a shower and put some clothes on after two days of moping around the house. How pathetic am I?
