Sketch & Stash Challenge #2

Click to enlarge image
Good morning, everyone! I've just put the final touches to the card I started a few days ago for the Sketch & Stash Challenge #2. This is a fab new challenge blog, which has a new sketch to follow every fortnight ... PLUS ... you're challenged to use your new stash!

Everything on this card is brand new with the exception of the pink gems, bright pink cardstock and craft foam pads. I finally received my long overdue parcel from Artymiss this week which contained a set of 6 K & Co 6x6" pads of paper for £9.99 ... yes, that's £1.67 per pad! ... and my Quickutz Flourish Dies which were 50% off. Yippee! So I used them on this card!

Thanks, as ever, for visiting. Your comments, however long or short, are always loved and appreciated.
Ta, ta for now ... unfortunately housework and packing beckon (only 16 days til we move....ahhhh!).
