Tilda in Lavender and Lace

Hello to you all - followers old & new and anyone else who just pops by.

This is a card that nearly never was as I didn't quite like the sketch, but luckily I decided to give it a  go because I am so pleased with the result. This is the sketch I nearly didn't use from Sketch 'n' Stash

The background papers are both from Bearly Mine Designs and the image is Tilda coloured with my trusty pencil crayons . Instead of cutting the image out as an oval I decided to make an oval frame from pearlescent card which I think gives it a better finish. I used Marianne Creatables dies LR0143 for the corners and LR0157 for the lavender sprigs. The sentiment was free with a magazine, the lace and pearls from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Sketch 'N' Stash challenge 'Sarah-Janes sketch'
The Official Magnolia Inspiration challenge 'TOMIC 1st Anniversary'
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Lavender and Lace'
Just Magnolia challenge 'Purple & White'
Bearly Mine challenge ' Tic, Tac, Toe' (I used pearls, corners, sentiment)

Thanks for dropping by and for any comments you may leave

This is really pretty Andrea. I know what you mean about the sketch at first glance it looks a bit busy, but when you give it a go it turns out quite nice. You have used my favourite colour again and I love all of your little details.
