Here is this week's Sketch and my card for your inspiration:


The image I have used is Pottin Flowers from the Priscillastyles Store and coloured with OMS and regular and watercolour pencils. The background (base) has been coloured with sprays from Linday's fabuolous range. the other patterned papers are offcuts from my TNTT "too nice to toss" box. I love the colour combination and how the final product turned out.

Now that you have seen mine, head on over to the MMSC blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous cards.
