Sketch N Stash challenge no 60 - pick a Sketch time!

Hello - Mrs Lazy Bones here, on Bank Holiday timing so still in my dressing gown.  Nice to think  it's a three day week at work and then another four days off - thanks Will and Kate!!
Back to the task at hand and our latest challenge at Sketch N Stash - and it's pick any one of the sketches from the last 60!!  It was lovely for me, not having been on the team very long, to go back and pick from all the fab layouts.  I also noted a few others to use when I need  one.   By the way, I loved all your cards using my sketch last week - thanks so much for using it and playing along with us!

For my card for this week, I chose sketch number 21,  as below, but rotated it to better suit my image.
I used this darling little image from Whiff of Joy and then layered her up with Daisy Bucket and Stampin Up papers are my 'had for ages' stash.  The tag die that she is cut out from is a new die set, I think from Go Kreate, that I bought at Ally Pally a couple of weeks ago.  I've also made a ribbon flower - which was a first for me, sure you'll be seeing a lot more of these as it was so easy to do!! 
Finally a pic from the side - have to confess to not being entirely happy with this card - I think it's because the image is a bit overpowered by the big flower and ribbon.
 Do go and take a look at the makes that my fabby teamies at Sketch N Stash have made- they've done themselves proud, (as always!).  We also have a great prize - this yummy Joanna Sheen stamp, so pick a sketch from our great selection and come and play with us!! 
 Catch you later!
