FMS Challenge #176 - A Sketch By Cindy H

I know I have been a little remiss of late with my blogging, but I had to do quite a bit of running around when I got back . . . you know how it goes . . . go away for two days, come back, and have enough jobs to fill two weeks?!!  How does that work, eh?

Anywho, I start a new online course tomorrow, so I will be posting my results from each class - providing I can keep up of course - this all means that the challenges will probably take a back seat for a week until the course ends.  So, I wanted to get one up before that happens and this one is for the Freshly Made Sketches #176 Challenge - A sketch by Cindy H

Here is the sketch
This is my card.

You can't see it in the photos, but the scalloped border has a stitched edge.  All supplies are listed below.  Thank you so much for popping by today and for any comments you leave, they are always truly appreciated and I do reciprocate wherever possible.  Have a great day!  Hazel xx
