Doodle Blooms & Get Sketchy

Happy Friday everyone!!!

I hope you have a good weekend planned. We've got fabulous weather here at the moment. Today the sun was shining, it was lovely and warm and we were able to go out in summer clothes, gorgeous! It just makes you feel so much better about life!  Tomorrow is supposed to be more of the same!  I'm off to Oxford to do an art journalling course with Natasha.  It's run by Sarah Anderson from the Play Date Cafe team.  We had such a giggle last week, we just spend the day messing around with paints and rubber stamps, great fun!

So for my card I wanted to try out another digi image and thought I could combine it with this week's Get Sketchy challenge.   I keep seeing them popping up everywhere and I've downloaded a couple that I want to play with. Today I'm using one from Tiffany Doodles, called Doodle Blooms. This bloom is just so elegant, I love it!  I am in a dotty mood today, hence the papers ;o)  I matted some 'Early Bird' papers onto black cardstock and paper pieced the flower onto some Making Memories 'Love Struck' paper and then finished it off by framing it with some of my Nesties.  Using my new favourite ruffled ribbon technique I ruffled some ribbon and tied a bow at the other side.  Finally to finish I stamped my sentiment and inked with Tim Holtz 'tea dye' ink to age it.  I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.  I do love my polka dots.  What patterns do you like?  I'd love to hear what ones work for you.

We have visitors again this weekend so I won't have much time to play, but I will be popping back on Monday with an {ippity} card.  I'm going to try and play along with my first H{ippity} Hop then.

Have a lovely weekend! 

Ciao for now ♥
