My 1st Card From A Sketch

With all my time spent learning to blog I'm struggling to fit any card making into the day, I hope with practice I will spend more time on my cards than I do on my blog, unlike now!

This is the first time I have followed a sketch to make a card and who better to follow than the great Bev Rochester over at Wild Orchid Challenge. This lady is so talented I'm totally in awe of her work I've even taken to checking out her blog All The Things I Love
before I have my cup of tea in the morning!
I've learnt a few more lessons whilst making this card
 but the main one for me was 'thank goodness for Walnut Stain Distress Ink!' I wasn't happy with my colouring again but the distress ink bought everything together.
