Card No 1 for Feeling Sketchy week 17

I am so slow it has taken me all afternoon after a busy morning at work to make 2 birthday cards.  I used the Feeling Sketchy week 17 sketch.

This is the first card

I used La La Land Stamp "Darling Marci" and Stampin Up sentiment.  Blue and brown card put through cuttlebug and yellow buttons.

This was the sketch


  1. way to go Margaret, love Darling Marci, she is so sweet! great embossing and flower accents!

    Thanks for joining us at Feeling Sketchy! :-D

  2. Lovely work as always Margaret! Love your choice of colours, and great use of the sketch. Sometimes good cards take more time, thanks so much for playing at feeling sketchy :)

  3. Great card Margaret. I really like how you have positioned your Marci stamp like she is sitting on a bench or a wall. Too cute. Thanks for playing along with us again at Feeling Sketchy.

  4. love the stamp!! and the idea of sitting on the wall :)

  5. As always Margaret, a lovely card :) Thanks for joining us this week at Feeling Sketchy!
