Penny Black Saturday Challenge # Sketch

Good Morning friends,
There's a gorgeous sketch over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week, why not give it a go.
I used the Papertake Weekly Challenge of lilac and lemon. Gorgeous spring colours!!

To make my easel card I used a die cut card from a  goody bag from Craftwork Cards.
 My lovely friend Sue gave  it to me at the papercraft show in Harrogate on Saturday, mwah, we had a lovely time and came back with lots of goodies.
I already had some scalloped squares from the same company, which I layered on top.
I used lilac core'dinations and lemon Bazzil bling, and some paper from a stack pad I bought at the show. It doesn't have a name.
The image is from the "Wonderful" clear stamp set by Penny Black.
 I stamped a few times and decoupaged some of the flowers.
 I thought I would try cutting the circle with a Nestability die with the flowers out side. Sorry I can't remember the correct term.
If you want to try it don't colour your image first, I had a few tries. It was difficult to work out how far to cut around the flowers first. I got there in the end and pleased with the result.
The sentiment is from Stamping Up and ribbon is Dovecraft.
Have a great day,
Love Cherie    //*.*\\
