Sketch sat & monochromatic cards

I am a bit later today as I had a real stress with my card this morn, between that and constant child issues! So I scrapped the whole card and started again! I'm so glad I did too! This is so much better and I am very pleased. I used the sketch over on sketch saturday, I used an idea from a couple of the DT's with the ribbons, it's such a cute effect! I also carried the theme over on Anya Ink which is monochromatic cards. I have used an adorable stamp from the Miss Anya rain snow shine collection coloured in with my faithful prismas. The papers are papermania creative tones, the flowers are from a great range at Mulberry crafts with the foliage punched with my McGill branch punch. The sentiment is computer printed and the chiffon ribbon from my stash. I also added a little stickles to the white roses for a little blingy touch! I distressed all the paper and am really pleased with the final result (haven't I said that already!). Thanks for looking again and thanks for all your lovely comments! xx
