Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Would you believe it,it's Wednesday again already! 
So that means it is Sweet Sketch Wednesday day!!!

This week we are sponsored by Lacy Sunshine and I chose this lovely image from the Flowerpot Pretties - Marguerite Daisies.
I printed her on a Craftwork Cards tag and put a paper bow at the top from their Kitsch collection, my papers and card candi are from that collection too.
Ribbon is from the jar and the white lacy edge is a Martha Stewart punch.

Our sketch is a blast from the past this week as it's the last challenge of the month

Purple Kate

Here's a card I made at the weekend, I had had  the skin coloured in for a while on the image which is Birthday Kate from DigiStamp Boutique so I finally finished her off.

The scroll card is from Craftwork Cards but I have added the embossed lines and the papers and embellishments are all from their Velvet Plum collection. 

Allsorts have a challenge The Colour Purple this week so I am entering this card there.

Thank you for visiting and for all the lovely comments you take the time to leave.
