'GIRLIE' with a Sketch

Brrrr it's cold here today!  And snow has been falling non stop too, although it has not been really laying.  I think there may well be more overnight though and we could wake to a very white lookout.

I have loads of cards to Blog, they are forming a queue.  I have actually only got them photographed, but I will not bombard you with them all at once.

Tonight I have a card to share which I made following a lovely sketch at 'Sketch Saturday'.  I looked out one of my favourite images, this one has been coloured by a very dear friend of mine.  And I chose my three favourite colours to enter the Challenge at Love to Create.  Three favourite?  Well where cardmaking is concerne it has to be Plum, Pink and Lilac.

I tried a shape I have not done  before and although I am pleased with it I think it would lay flatter if I had not applied the papers to the inside triangles.  A shame really, because it would not look so good inside without this.

Papers: Prima
Flowers from Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace:  Christmas present
Large perls:  Christmas present

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday Challenge - Lovely Sketch
Stamping for the Weekend Challenge - Girlie
Bunny Zoe Challenge - Anything Goes
Love to Creats - 3 colours (Plum, Pink, Lilac)

Thank you for looking, and also thank you all for your lovely comments, these really do mean everything to me.
