A new sketch at Sketch N Stash

Hi everyone, have just dried out after the wash out here in London yesterday!  We went up to Tower Bridge and had a fantastic view of the pageant and the Royal Barge, despite the downpour, it was amazing and a sight to behold!
II'm sufficiently dry enough to post my card for the new challenge at SNS where we have the following fabulous sketch designed by our lovely Sarah-Jane.

Now you know what it's like when you get new stash, you just have to use it, and this lattice die from Paper Trey Ink was a birthday present that I just had to use!!  So I slightly elongated that panel of the sketch to accommodate it!! The image is a gorgeous new one from Mo Manning called Alisa with Roses which you can find here, another new item to my collection, but the rest of my elements have pretty much been in my stash awhile, including the corner dies, the small floral punches from Stampin Up and the ticket die.  I didn't add much else in the way of embellishing as I loved the simple effect of the image against the trellis! 
This fortnight at SNS  we're being sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop and we have a wonderful £10 voucher to give away!


Hope you can play along, and if you'd like any more inspiration, check out the SNS teams' wonderful creations here!

I'm also entering my card into the current  Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is Anything Goes
I have another busy day today - lunch out followed by a family gathering later - enjoy your day!!
