Roses on Paper Challenge

The very talented Anki very kindly left a comment on my blog a couple of days and also told me about a fairly new challenge blog called Roses on Paper Challenge Blog which she has done a wonderful sketch for this week.

I had an order for one of my new notebooks and have taken the opportunity to use Anki's fab sketch for making this.



Papers are Basic Grey Euphoria (does anyone know where to get Basic Grey 6x6 pads - everywhere that I have been looking appears to be sold out and my stock of these is just about finished!),card SU, image Whiff of Joy and blooms are some of the ones that my aunt kindly brought over from California with her when she visited last year - thanks again Alice. Charms and ribbon from my stash.

Really enjoyed this sketch and will be keeping an eye on this great new challenge blog.

Thanks for looking
