Sketch N Stash is here again!!

This is my card for the latest challenge at Sketch N Stash, with the sketch designed by the lovely lady that is Vicky on our DT.

Loved the sketch, Vicky!!  Hope you will too as we have one of our fab regular sponsors with us and you could win four of their great images!

You'll see straight away that I've rotated the image a quarter turn, as I had this idea to do an easel card as soon as I saw the sketch!!
I've merged this gorgeous new Tilda image with the Magnolia bench which has been in my stash awhile and coloured both with my PM's. I've also done a few very light clouds with my Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a hadn made stencil!!
The papers are K&Co which I've had for at least two years but the little die cut flower flourishes, sentiment and corners are from a K&Co die cut pack that I picked up a couple of weeks a go from HobbyCraft - they are so pretty and you get loads for your bucks!!
The large pair of roses on the bottom half are also from the set, although they look here like they are part of the paper! A few sparkly gems and that was me done!!
Thought about adding more but eldest DD said she loved it and that's saying something as she rather  dislikes images without mouths!!
Feeling a bit sorry for myself today, I've been stung by a wasp that was hiding in my towel as I got out of the bath and I now have a very large sting on my leg!!  I suffer badly when wasps sting, and have a mild systemic reaction which makes the sting area very hard, hot and very wide!!  May have to get something stronger from the Dr if the anthistamines I'm taking don't work.  Blumming things nest in some part of our eaves every year and are a real nuisance!!  This year they've chosen the bathroom eaves - so my warning to you is to shake your towel before you wrap it round you!!
Back to our challenge - hope you can join in with us and make some fab cards using Vicky's great sketch!  The DT girlies have certainly done that, so hop on over to see their beautiful and varied cards on the challenge blog.
Don't forget to tell us what is new and what has been in your stash a while! 
Thanks for stopping by!
