And sweet as English air could make her…

It’s Wednesday and that means a new sketch to play with over at the Outlawz and the card I’ve made with the sketch features Pink Rose and Shimmer Chiffon from our fabulous sponsor, The East Wind.

And here’s this week’s sketch.

With such a beautiful and feminine image I just had to go shabby with this card.  I inked the lovely Marianne die with Distress Ink in Tea Dye and then added in some gilding roughly with my finger and found the pretty Prima trim in my stash.  With all my shabbilicious elements I am entering this over at Fun with Shapes and More.

I only recently found and fell in love the Very Vintage Double Dot paper from BoBunny and scoured the ’net to find some.  It goes beautifully with the image and the shabby chic theme and is so very pretty, so I’m linking up my card over at Cute Card Thursday where their current theme is pretty papers.

The sketch only called for one embellie on each horizontal element but I wanted something more than just the three large flowers I used, I tried different smaller flowers but they were all too much.  Then I thought, what does this beautiful lady need to complete her outfit and I realised of course that she needed a fan.  I was sure I had some fan charms in my stash and sure enough I did, lovely large open ones and they were exactly what I needed to complete my card.  The current challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow calls for a charm so I am also entering my card over there.

Sure hope you’ll come join in the fun over at the Outlawz, there’s a different challenge for each day of the week and always loads of inspiration from the various DTs.
