Sketch Challenge

I can't believe how quickly the months are flying by! The May sketch challenge has just gone live over on Sarah's Cards blog, Nat created a fab sketch and I loved using it even if I did deviate a little bit from her original. If you fancy playing along and be in with a chance of winning a £10 e-voucher then all the details are here.
I used more Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden papers combined with a sheet of script paper from the Kaiser Timeless collection which is just great for vintage pages and makes the perfect background.
I used a Martha Steward border punch to create the edge on the bazzill but the white was too stark against the rest of the papers so I used distress inks to try and merge the papers into the bazzill.



You can't really see it on the photo but I added a layer of glossy accents to each bar of the bird cage and to the paper clip at the top of the page to add a bit more texture.


I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments that have been left on my blog, I really do appreciate them and love reading what you think.
