Friday Sketchers #42 & Colour Create #6!

A bit of a challenge combo card here I'm afraid! I've used the fab sketch from Mumur at Friday Sketchers (although I've flipped it, moved the text and replaced the flower with a bow - hopefully it still counts!) and this weeks Colour Create which is Orange, Yellow and Green. This worked out perfectly because I'd already decided I wanted to make my mum a Mothers Day card with this fab Daffodil download from Chris - Sketching Stamper and the colours suit down to the ground! I think I'm back off to bed now - I thought it would be a good idea to meet my friend for a 9.15 Body Attack class at the gym, only she then followed it with 45 mins of free weights and running!! I feel like I've been run over! Thanks for dropping by!

Image - Sketching Stamper (79p - what a bargain!) coloured with water colour pencils and highlighted with Sakura Stardust
Papers - Pink Petticoat 'Pistachio' little big dots & 'Sunshine' little swirls (orange paper from stash)
Border - Fiskars Threading Water punch
Ribbon - stash
Gems - Creative Beadcraft
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Corners - Cuttlebug die
