Card & A Half #3 - Sketch Challenge

Hello my lovely Blog Readers!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend at the moment! I am having some kid free time whilst they are all out woodcutting - so I am trying to make the most of cleaning and crafting at the same time. It is not working very well - but I am sure you would all understand that crafting is way more fun and relaxing than cleaning!

Anyway, I have finally managed to make a card for the Card and A Half #3 - Sketch Challenge.
This was the sketch to go from......

and this is what I came up with.....

I am actually really happy with how this card turned out despite it taking me a couple of days to finish it. I still can't believe that I haven't used any ink or stamps on this one. Yikes! A first for me! I have used a bit of everything that was within the reach of my craft desk though! I also used the Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cart for the label and the bird and lace pieces were given to me by my good pal Annmaree who I think cut them from the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art Cart!

 This one has been earmarked for one of hubbies elderly relatives.
