New challenge Noor Design UK - Sketch

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I have had to schedule this post as it is a busy weekend for me.  I went to the Making It Craft show yesterday, which was great fun and I spent all my pennies. Today is Mike's birthday so the family including Kyra are descending upon us for lunch today. so I will be running around cleaning etc. so I will get on with the task in hand.   

This is a sad post for me to write as this is my last DT creation for Noor Design UK. I thought long and hard about it, but took the decision to step down as I don't feel I am doing justice to the lovely Dutch Doobadoo products. I would like to say a massive thank you to Tracy for giving me this opportunity and wish her and the wonderful team all the very best and I hope her store continues to grow from strength to strength. This is not the last you will see of the lovely Noor dies as you all know I absolutely adore them.

Anyway on with this month's challenge and it's a sketch.

Now sketches aren't something I have shied away from and don't really  know much about, this is my take on it, I have kept it pretty simple

I have cut the shape of the card using the Dutch Doobadoo Flower and Four Petals stencil and edged the papers and card with Dutch Doobadoo Structure paste. The papers are from the Spring A5 paper pad and are beautiful soft pinks and greens.

Nestling under the flowers is a fabulous Swirl Leaf die.

This is the Banner die and I've stamped one of the sentiments from the Best Wishes English Banner Text clear stamp which has been made to fit perfectly onto the Banner die.

The prizes for this challenge are:


Thank you so much for popping in.

I will be back later this afternoon.
