Super Sketchy Sunday

And here we are again at the start of another week , where does time go?
At 365 Cards today we had the usual great sketch to follow which has the ability to turn round and bite you on the butt when you think you have it sussed.
Why do I find these simpler sketches sooooo hard?
It started with a die cut pocket by Linda Maron 'Mod Designs', well it looked sort of diamond shaped!....shut your eyes and!!
Then I found some paper bits out of my leftovers box to match the colours, the green being Kay & Co...aha! it was the edge piece with the name on the back....that's a bonus.
And an Anna Griffin card blank in lilac was the perfect base.
Some purple organza ribbon tied in a bow so I could use the tails and I had the sketch sorted.
But I added a Linda Maron metal word doodad which says 'Dream' to hold the ribbon tails down and inside the flap I used some Doodlebug rub-ons to say 'take time to..'
So there is a slight deviation from the sketch, but only a tiny one and there we have it a start of another week over at 365 Cards
