Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch # 218 Sponsor Fresh Brewed Designs

Looking through a window into the garden.

Good morning and welcome to another Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It was lovely to see so many great entries this week and also so many of our followers used an image from our sponsor which is even more special.

Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards, it's a hard one to choose this week as there were so many wonderful entries.

I know you're all looking at my card and saying why hasn't she used paper like the sketch?  Well I was out the other day in this emporium shop and came across design papers 12x12 sheets which caught my eye.  They were 50 cent each which was even better.  But it wasn't until I got home and realised that all the papers were K & Co designs which made me even happier.

I found this beautiful paper which went perfectly with this lovely image I'm using from this week from our sponsor Fresh Brewed Designs.  Then I thought it was too pretty to cover up with other design papers so I had this idea to use a clear acetate cover for binding as paper and I then put it through an embossing folder to make it look like that you were looking through a window to the garden outside.

This week we have another blast from the past and Sally's computer hadn't been repaired in time.
