 What beautiful weather, I'm enjoying the sunshine but wondering whether my mojo has melted in the unaccustomed warmth.  I have managed to finish up this card which began life as something a little different.  It's based on Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  If you look under the centre panel there is another Basic Grey Curio DP, I attached the panel with a large decorative stitch on my sewing machine that went slightly off its line, which didn't look great.  So I cut it in half, reattached it under a new piece of ribbon and salvaged it.  The image is from A Day for Daisies, beautiful isn't she.  Colouring is Copics and Distress Inks, some doodling and dotting on the ground line.  Sentiment is Elusive Images, I've cut a large scroll in half to fill the corners and used flowers with card candy centres.
My card is for the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch
Basic Grey - stitching
Southern Girls - anything goes
Sweet Stampin' - something old, something new (sentiment is old, digi is new!)
Simply Create - fly with us
The Poodle Parlour - come fly with me
