Dancing in the rain...


I struggled a bit with this weeks gorgeous Muse card by Therese, mostly I think because purple is not my favourite colour, but in the end I found a crocheted doily in my stash which became a perfect focal point LOL!  Inspired by the bands of colour, the colour palette and the "glass half full" sentiment, together with the clustered focal point from this weeks CAS{E} this Sketch.  I recycled the cardstock window removed from this mornings card to create my sentiment panel using this fab Verve sentiment stamp, together with a Spellbinders butterfly, some gingham ribbon and Kaisercraft gems, in the end it all came together surprisingly quickly.

Many thanks for stopping by, much appreciated :)
