Sketch N Stash Challenge 98

Morning - another weekend over, and a lovely one it was too!  My Dad was down from Norwich and we went to Richmond Park on Saturday whch was fabulous! Gorgeous day and  the deer were gorgeous too. Still it's Monday now which means it's time for our new challenge at Sketch N Stash, as designed by our lovely Angie.
We're being sponsored by the fab Pink Gem Designs and the lucky winner will win 4 digi images of their choice!
I needed to make a card for my BIL who's a plumber and I loved this image from Just Inklined stamps.  It's a digi so just perfect for the plumber in your life!
I wasn't entirely happy with the card though, as it seemed a bit flat and dull I suppose.  The separate elements are all lovely, I love the papers from the new Craftsman pad by Prima, but everything together didn't really leave me with any sense of satisfaction!  That's why I put the duck in the fountain of water to add a bit of interest and it's also the oldest item that I used from my stash!
Sorry to if the above offends you, I did try to place my watermark strategically!
Well, that's it from me today - do check out the rest of the SNS teams's work here - lovely!!
Work, here I come!
