It's a Crafter's Companion Blog - Challenge 8 - Rachel's Sketch

Hi everyone well I eventually got on to post this, my internet has being playing up again, crashing and going off line all together. I have been trying since sunnday to get this done!!! Well here it is eventually. I designed the sketch this time, simple but easy to work with in my opinion and we have had some great DT cards this time for challenge 8, can't believe we are on #8 already on the blog.

Well this was the sketch

And my card

I'm not to sure about this one though. I needed a card for an older ladies birthday but now wish I had made it on a 8x8" rather than a5 card base. I have used the vintage florals cd for this card.
