Less is More - Week 65 - Sketch

Hello fellow bloglanders......... well, I hope you aren't having the terrible weather we are at the moment.  Gales and torrential rain ........ can hardly believe it's May next week.  Still, I suppose I don't have to tear myself away from the garden........... lol

This week's challenge over at Less is More is a Sketch:

 You may choose either of these
SKETCHES
For this card I went for a 4" square fancy edged white card blank.  I have punched the centre using my Martha Stewart Punch around the Page Caning which I've just got and couldn't wait to use!!!  I've placed a piece of cardstock behind and then stamped the sentiment from Stampin Up Always Elegant set using Shabby Shutters DI.  Will try and come back later in the week with another card but we're just off to an art exhibition preview by my friend Kaye Parmenter at East Lambrook Manor Gardens ..... methinks we will be a little soggy when we arrive!

Thanks for stopping by.

    1. I couldn't resist this one after I saw it in Craft Stamper this month. Had to buy it from the States though as not available over here.
