Sketch N Stash Challenge 123 Pearls and Swirls and a sketch of course



Hello - hope you all had a great weekend!  Mine started off well with a great visit to The Craft Barn for a demo day, highlights included watching Chris Dark work her magic with gelatos, Jo Firth Young demoing in her Jofy stamps and Jane Collman making cards with gorgeous Lavinia Stamps!  ( A few more styles and techniques to try out!!)
On to today's challenge  and this is the fab sketch from our back catalogue at Sketch N Stash, with an optional theme of Pearls and Swirls
And as we're being sponsored by the wonderful  A Day for Daisies, I've used a ADFD image that we were lucky enough to be able to choose.
I've used this gorgeous image, Picked Flowers and teamed it up with Lulu and Roy papers from Kaisercraft.
I made the rolled flowers below with a Spellbinders Die and added some frantage and mini bugle beads to the centres.
The swirls were cut with a Die-namics die and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
I love these Kaiser Craft pads as they come with little die cut borders and tags, one of which I've used along the centre mat, along with some organsa ribbon and pearls,  You can also see my miserable attempt at making clouds with a new Clarity Stamps mask.  A great deal more practice required there, methinks!
As mentioned, we're being sponsored by A Day For Daisies so come and join us!!
