Just Because...

Hello crafters,
I've never tried a sketch challenge before so I thought I'd give it a go... 'Sketch Saturday' had a fairly simple sketch (even for me!)...
... here what I came up with

The stamp used was 'Isabella' by SATURATED CANARY, gorgeous isn't she? Coloured with my promarkers, of course.  The white pearl card base is topped with a piece of white cardstock which has been embossed, on top of this is patterned paper  from an old stack (oldie but goodie) called 'Upcycle' by COSMO CRICKET ( it has a very vintage feel to it) I also used this for the thin border strip across the front. I matted and layered using green and purple and added a simple stamped sentiment onto a piece of  'Dots & Stripes - Candy Shoppe' by ECHO PARK (lovely, lovely 6x6 stack, all yellows, pinks, browns, orange and turquoise, I used 'lemon drop').  The stamp was a 'Mixed Sentiment' set by PERSONAL IMPRESSION and the buttons are from a local charity shop!  I hope you like this as much as I do...
