At The Next Level this week, our Challenge is a really pretty Sketch, and it is amazing to see how each DT card has a completely different take on this and is really inspirational.

I decided to go 'old fashioned' and produced a really 'girly' card, which I have to admit are my favourites, with another one of my h'Anglar images, the cute little hooded girl sitting on a branch. The papers I used this week are predominantly from a digital kit called Summer Cottage Collection from Raspberry Road Designs. The really pretty flowers were from Joanna Sheen and I used a Fiskars punch to create the circle.
The image was layered up to create dimension and was coloured with Copic Markers.

The inside again used another image and featuring the papers from the kit. The rose spray stamps are from Magnolia

I made a thick box envelope to fit the height of the card and embellished this with a matching tag and string to follow through the garden theme.

Thanks for looking, Ann xxx

Oh this is just stunning Ann. Love the image and the little flowers are just beautiful. I know I've said to you before but I could look at your work all day long - it's always original, always beautifully put together and I think it's awesome. Hope you are OK and not wilting too much in the heat!! Hugs, Dawny xxxxx
