Sketch and Stash #30

Hi girls. A warm welcome to my blog. It's a pleasure to have you here browsing and I hope I have managed to provide something you will enjoy. The temperature continues to rise (not by much granted) and I fondly think of Spring and finally getting rid of the snow that is still lying in the shaded part of the garden. Well we can only wish.
I made this card for Sketch & Stash Challenge where they gave us a great sketch to follow. I couldn't resist the temptation to ink up one of my new, and as yet unused, Lili of the Valley stamps "On the Garden Wall" which I have coloured with my Copics. I have used Kanban "Patchwork" card (which is absolutely luscious) and Kanban "Parisian Daisies (pink)" along with a brushed satin and ivory paper. I used a Martha Stewart punch border and the ribbon and gems are from my stash. I used stickles although it might not be obvious on the photograph. The flowers are homemade from the backing card.
If you like this card it would be great if you could spare a mo to leave a comment which I can guarantee will be much appreciated. I often wonder what the visitors to my blog who didn't leave a comment thought. I would be interesting to know but hey, a big thank you to everyone who does leave something. Anyway have a great start to the weekend and stay safe.
Hugs,
