Friday Sketchers Sketch #14

Over on the Friday Sketchers blog there is a wonderful sketch to follow. I had great fun with this and plan to give this card to Eldest Daughter whne she gets her exam results later this month.

Her last three years at school were plagued with receiving treatment for her tumour and having a totally unhelpful school who just said she was too ill to be there so her results will be an achievement whatever they are, although I think she is already resigned to re-sits rather than the A levels and the Health and Social care course that she has had her heart set on. Since her Chemo ended she has turned totally girly and pink. I hope this card reflects who she is now.

I Used:
Papers - Basic Grey
Cardstock - Papermania
Sentiment - Three Bugs In a Rug
Flowers - Mixed
Image Stamp - Dewdrop Craftz
