Good afternoon all you lovely crafters,I am having a dream day today,"All morning in the garden pottering and lounging"And all afternoon crafting and playing. And to top that I found out I came third at Sweet Pea Stampers and won two weeks as a Guest Designer. It cannot get any better!!!!,well it can, I could have won.
The image on my card today is "ching-chou kuik's Nostalgia" coloured with Promarkers I have followed a sketch hence the little boxes.. The backing paper was downloaded but I can't remember where from, I printed it off weeks ago,and am just using it now.The flowers and bow are from Wild Orchid Crafts,and a Papermania stamped sentiment. I do hope you like it.

This is for the following challenges
SKETCH & STASH Sketch  #New and unused Stash  (My Backing Paper)
SWEET PEA STAMPERS #Stitching Faux or real
