Inspirational Card Sketches DT Call & Lili of the Valley Challenge card

Happy Monday folks, hope you all had a great weekend and managed to get lots of crafting done. I managed to make a few cards at the weekend which is just as well because I have a busy week coming up - not like me to be so organised :o)

I was blog hopping a couple of nights ago when I came across a brand new sketch blog - so new in fact that the first sketch has just been posted a few days ago. Dawn is looking for 6 members to join her Design Team for a period of 4 months. Further details can be found on Dawn's blog and also on the new Inspirational Sketch Blog .

It is a great sketch that Dawn has made and I found it so easy to work with. I have rotated the sketch and added a few other bits and pieces to my card, you know how I like to keep on adding embellishments.

I was looking for something for the top corner and couldn't believe my luck when I found this bottle top. How brill is it that it has a hat and 'Party Animal' on it - just like my new WOJ stamp !!

I have even managed to make an insert AND matching envelope (think I need to have a rest, lol) so all in all I am quite pleased with my efforts of the day.
I am entering this card into the wonderful Lili of the Valley challenge - the theme this week is 'Anything Goes' .

Phew, lunch break almost over so better zoom back to work - have a fabulous Monday!
'Mouse under partyhat' by WOJ coloured with prismas, papers from Dovecraft's Masculine pack, See D's sentiment and partyhat duo stamps, nesties, Dovecraft bottletop, stars from stash.
