Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge

 Here's my entry for this weeks challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. It's the end of the month so as well as this sketch

there is a twist of coffee.

Please don't tell anyone but I suspect that the character in this Lili of the Valley Hello Cupcake image may actually have a cup of tea in her hand but I have used coffee and cream coloured papers as well as the pink ones that came from Craftwork Cards some years ago.
I punched the flowers from the same papers and used a small circle punch just to shape them a bit - here's a close up

The pearls are from my stash and the oveal is die cut from American Crafts cardstock using my new just arrived yesterday Spellbinders Floral Ovals. I have been wanting this set for ages and when they came up on Amazon at about £12 they were too good a bargain to resist so this sketch was perfect to have a play with them too.

Hope you like my creation

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to take the time to leave.

Goodness me, I have just checked and yes I do have a few sheets of that set of papers left.
Great take on the sketch and a lovely image, great colouring too.
Fab die.

Oh Anne your card is stunning. I just adore this LOTV image and of course she's having a quick coffee I knew that. Your colours and papers are so pretty and your handmade flowers are totally perfect and of course a perfect match. I love my floral ovals by Spellbinders they're beautiful and can be used in so many different ways. Stunning card Anne and thanks so much for sharing your talent with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

Lovely card, Anne. I think the hints of coffee work very well with the pink.
