Inspirational Card Sketches #3

Good morning, well here we are again on a brand new week with ICS and you are in for a treat! We have another fabulous sketch from Dawn to play with and it is gorgeous. I am so happy with how my card turned out that I will definately be using this sketch in the future!

I am officially IN LOVE with BG papers and I think these from the Offbeat pack are now my new favourites (for today, lol). I just love the colour combo - BG really does take all the hard work away from mixing papers :o)

This little beauty was sent to me as a RAK from a special friend - thanks babe, I love her. Coloured with my trusty prismas and sansador - I think I even used a pencil that I had never used before, lol!! Brads, flowers and spacers are from Poppicrafts, Dovecraft and my retro punch. Not much else to tell really - hope you like it.
Thanks to all of you who entered our first week - I loved looking at your takes on the sketch - so much variety. Hope to see you all playing along this week too.
A bit of fab news now ..... I HAVE WON SOMETHING!!!! Hehehehehe think I am excited??? You bet. I have just opened an email from the fab Clare Curd (Designer for DoCrafts) to tell me I have won some goodies for displaying her blinkie in my sidebar for her brand new range Signature Range which is due to be launched very, very soon. Smiling all day now :o) Thanks so much Clare!
Have a fab day :o)
Edit ... Whilst bloghopping I found a blog challenge I didn't know about (where have I been !!). The theme is flowers so I am going to enter my card to Arty Girlz . Well, you know how I love my flowers .... :o)
