Sketch N Stash No 55 - where did that fortnight go!!

Cannot believe that I'm here with my second DT card for the Sketch N Stash Challenge already!  Loved my first fortnight though looking at all the wonderful entries - great stuff!  Don't forget to check on the blog to see who is the lucky winner, and also in the top three!!

This week's sketch has been set by Jacky, - loved it, something in it that brought out the elegant in me, I think! ( I hope!!)

For my card, I used a new digi stamp that I very recently acquired from a day for daisies as brought to my attention by fab friend, Alex!  So many wonderful images and it's immediate gratification as they're digis!
So that's my new item for my card, well and the LOTV sentiment and the MS branch punch, and the tulle (mostly Christmas presents mind you, is that old or new? LOL!)  The item that has been in my stash for a while are the papers which I'm not even sure who they're by - have a feeling they may be Stampin Up but don't quote me on that!!
We have got TWO wonderful sponsors again for this week's challenge, Simon Says Stamps and Bunny Zoe Crafts so fab prizes to be won from each of these  great on-line stores!

As my card was for my niece, Charlotte, who loves purple and medieaval, and got married at Hampton Court in December,  I thought I'd add in a couple of the pics of her wonderful day! (Can you see all the snow out of the window -she was so happy that she'd got her white wedding!!)

This pic's a bit grainy but had to show it - it's not everyone who has Henry the 8th at their wedding!
Then look what she had on underneath her beautiful dress - wicked witch stockings and funky purple boots!!
Back to the business at hand - don't forget to check out the fabulous makes from the great team at Sketch N Stash - lots of cards to inspire and delight you!!! 

Hope Monday isn't too bad for you - always a bit of glum day for me at the start of the working week!  Take care.
