DT card for my Sketch at Sketch N Stash

Oh it was so lovely to wake up this morning and not to have to get ready for work!!  The sun is also shining, our weekend of festivities finished very successfully about 11pm last night and today is mine to do a bit of card making!!  (Have got to collect Emily from Waterloo but shall be so happy to see her!!) Thank you all for your lovely comments re all my celebrations, it only added to all the happiness!! 
Now on to my card today which is for our new challenge at Sketch N Stash - and it's my sketch ( prettified by our lovely Angie of course!).
Now I don't make many cards for selling or commissions ( I find it quite nerve wracking wondering if the commissioner will like it) but I was asked to make a wedding card for someone (after the event for some reason) and it just happened to fall just as I was making my card for this challenge.
I used this beautiful  Mo Manning image from Mo's Digital Pencil which was so wonderful to colour.  That's my new item, just about everything else has been around for a while, especially the 12x12 sheet of Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper which has been lovingly stroked for at least  a couple of years before  I could bear to use it.
The flowers are a mix of hand made and blossoms bought from Crafty Emma's Online store and the little pin was handmade from my lovely matey Lesley - I have only just been able to use one as they're so pretty!
My teamies at SNS have made some gorgeous cards from my sketch so don't forget to have a peek.  I hope  that you can play along with us over the next fortnight, as you could win  5 digital images from the awesome selection at Kenny K Downloads.

I'm sure I've missed some wonderful creations in blogland over the last few days, so I really hope to be able to visit soon!!! 

Have a lovely Bank Holiday Monday!!
