A Sketch Saturday card

Tomorrow I'm off bright and early for four days at the NEC at Birmingham for Festival of Quilts.  It's well out of the city centre where there has been trouble, but I think us quilters can more than hold our own against a few rioters anyway!  Apologies for the poor photo here but I need to pack and doubt I'll get the chance to blog this in the morning...

There's a great prize on offer this week from Art Journey at Sketch Saturday and I had to have a try at it, I found Terry's sketch quite a challenge to work with but have given it my best shot.  I made a summery card using Sweet Threads from Basic Grey.  The stamp is from Kanban, comes with a lovely rectangular flowery border.  I've embossed it in WOW sparkly green and inked the background.  Used some lace from stash. MS round the page punch, butterfly punch and some flowers from stash.

My card is for the following challenges:
Basic Grey - sizzling summer
Crazy Challenge - embossing
Truly Scrumptious - lace it up
