Stamptacular Sunday Challenge # 15 - A Sketch

Good morning folks!

This is just a quick post from me this morning as I'm off out shopping and then on to my son's sports day this afternoon, weather permitting of course!!

I've entered the Stamptacular Challenge for the first time as there is a fab sketch to follow which I really enjoyed using, plus the chance to win an amazing prize! I chose one of the fab new stamps from Sugar Nellie and she's one sweet little girl. My papers are Kay & Co and I've also added some embossed Bazzill card for matting and also for the punched leaves (used a Woodware punch for these). The flowers are Prima, sentiment is a Melissa Frances Vintage Transfer and ribbon and brads are from my stash.

Hope you have a great day and I'm sorry this is a bit short and sweet. Just a couple of shots of my beautiful Begonias to leave you with this morning, they're so vibrant and pretty!

Have a fun filled day and I'll catch you later ;o)

Woo hoo I am able to leave a comment today !!! Your card is absolutely stunning Tara. I adore the papers you have used and the colour combo. That image is so pretty too. You will have to give me instructions on how to tie a bow like that too - I am sooo hopeless at bows ! Such a stunning card, I love it.

Hope Sports Day went well and the rain held off. Did you elbow the other Mum's out of the way to cross the line first ? ;o)
