Live in the Moment...

I have fallen in love with a sketch... and knowing me I will be using it over and over again ! Here is my card...


And here is the sketch from Sketch Saturday...

Recipe : The papers were free with a magazine - Image : Chamomile Sprite from Aurora Wings (I know, a chamomile flower is supposed to be white but I've coloured her in pink and she didn't mind...) - Flowers and Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts - Sentiment from Lisa's Altered Art.

I got a bit excited over the weekend : I won the FB group challenge with Aurora Wings ! You had to make a card using the freebie Mitzy gave us, the delicious little Dandelion Sprite... I went for a CAS card - which is totally out of my comfort zone - I nearly didn't post my card as I wasn't too keen on it, but Mitzy liked it and I won ! I feel so honoured ! Here is my card, as you can see no flowers, no ribbon, I had to sit on my hands to resist the temptation !!!
