A Spoon Full of Sugar Chellenge 21 - Sketch by Lim

Our challenge over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar" this week is to follow a sketch by the very talented Lim. We have a yummy prize this week from our new sponsor Roses on Paper. Summer the owner of this shop has very kindly donated gorgeous papers, flowers and a magnolia stamp.

For my card this week I have used High Hopes "Sitting Princess" and "Rock wall". I stamped the wall then masked it to chalk the pale blue sky. The swirls and sentiment are from the Lizzie Anne Design Little bits set "Once upon a Time".

Hope your having a great week. I'm off on a school trip with Zoe today and we're having a sporty day at a local sports centre.

Hugs,
