Ring a Ring of Roses



Great sketch again on Sketch Saturday and a lovely prize of 2 of Sandra Drys Great Stamps donated by the Craft Barn.


I'm in two minds about this card, not sure if the blue is right!!! Anyway its done and posted now so it will have to do. The papers are again from my Stash and I haven't been able to decorate the inside as I used all the scraps on the front. That's another reason for not being satisfied with it. The Rose Circle stamp is from Alota, and comes on a sheet of 6 different flower frames, (there are some great Easter frames on the sheet), Tilda and the frame have been coloured with copics,I was hoping to have my Copics Airbrush by now but am still waiting, so i had to colour the blue background with Prisma Pencils and Sansodor. Flowers and charm from stash. Sentiment is a SU stamp and the red heart has been cut from a tiny piece of scrap paper.


Thanks for looking
Hugs

Jacqui your card is beautiful and Tilda is so pretty! I love the wreath and the way you embellished your card as well. Try not to be so hard on yourself, your cards are perfect!
Speaking of scraps, isn't it funny that no matter how hard we try to use them up; they never seem to disappear?! *lol*

Beautiful card Jacqui :0) I know what you mean, when I can't get the inside finished to how I like, then it always feels unfinished. As a crafter we always critisize our own work but the recipient will still love it :0)
