2 Sketches 4 You Sketch 17

Morning folks....it's challenge time....yes I did manage to get one done and of course it's sneaky peek Thursday again.
The sketch this week on 2 Sketches 4 You is from the lovely and talented Laura...great cards once again from Laura and the DT. They are looking for their new Spring DT at the moment...so even more inspiration coming our way.




Not entirely happy with this one....think I may have gone a little bit overboard with the distressing distressed.....it looks positively heartbroken.....and the dull grey day hasn't lifted my spirits either or the piccie for that matter.
Cardstock.... Core'dinations
Papers & Sentiment Topper: Pink Petticoat....Old Fashioned Girl
Ribbon: American Crafts
Brads from my stash
Can you believe it's Thursday already.....where are the weeks going....so it's sneaky peek time again.
Well folks that's all for now...will be back later with another challenge card....just need to go and take a piccie...that is if it ever gets light enough....oh roll on Spring....catch up with you all later...Hugs Kath xxxxxx
