Sophisticats Week 3

Morning all, bit of a dull day here in Shropshire, but the promise of some sunshine later.

This is my DT card for our challenge over at Sophisticats this week, Karen really stretched us with her theme of "no stamping!" After I picked myself up off the floor and stopped panicking I actually really enjoyed making this card, it just felt so odd not stamping my image - I almost felt like I was cheating - how daft is that?? Karen has also given us a lovely sketch to follow, so maybe give yourself a challenge & a stretch & perhaps do something different this week.

My lovely owls & sentiment came from a scrapping set that a friend gave me, so I'm afraid I don't know where it's from, the DSP is by We R Memory Keepers, and I've punched the flowers out of the same papers to make the flowers, with some brads from my stash. The ribbon is Stampin' Up! and is from the retiring set Fairy Tale Originals which is 50% off - bargain!

Hope you can play along with us this week, we've a fab prize up for grabs from our Sponsor JB Crafting Supplies
