Sketch N Stash DT card

Back today with my card for the new Sketch at Sketch N Stash.  First though, just want to apologise for not being about much.  Really shocked on Saturday morning be news that my sister, Debbie, had had a heart attack!  She's only 51 for goodness sake!  Thankfully, she's ok and got to the hospital pretty quick, as she felt that something was really wrong!  She's had three stents put in and hopefully will be home tomorrow.  Had a lovely chat with her tonight, and she sounded so normal!!  She's a smoker though and it's put the fear of god into her, and is determined to give up!  I'm going up to Norwich next weekend now to see her and I might make her a cup of tea or two!  (She has strict instructions to rest).

On to our new challenge at Sketch N Stash and we have a fabulous one for you, as designed by our lovely teamie,  Jen - loved your sketch, Jen!
Really loving some of the latest releases at A Day for Daisies - this image is from the Bewildered set and I love the twenties feel of her.  She looks great in black and white too, I think! 
My papers are Stampin Up, the diamante buckle is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little black chiffon flower is from Mei Flower, one of our sponsors this week.  The two strips of black gems were from a set from the pound shop - grat value.   
One other item I reall do like is the white twill tape with the flourish.  This started out as plain twill tape from Joanna Sheen and I stamped it with this little flourish - opens up a whole new range of possibilities!!  The papers, and the sentiment which  I made with gilding flakes and flitter glue, are the oldest things I used from stash, with the image, buckles and flowers being rather more recent purchases! 
We have a couple of sponsors for this challenge, one being Mei Flower as I mentioned above who are offering an amazing £20 voucher to spend with them, and the other being Dies to Die For who have a yummy £10 voucher for the lucky winner .

Well, that's it from me today, other than to say you can check out the gorgeous makes of my SNS teamies here, have a great Monday, and I'll catch up with you soon, I promise!!
