My challenge card for Sketch and Stash; Allsorts Challenge and Papertake Weekley

Iv'e had a really busy week, so haven't done much in the way of crafting. But tonight I have made this 'new home' card, for my Aunt and Uncle who have just moved. I enjoyed working with the sketch and hope you like my interpretation. I am also entering this into the Allsorts Challenge, which is to use pink and brown. There is a lot of pink on this card, and brown in the spots and stripes. Another challenge I can enter this card for is the Papertake Weekly Challenge as it covers pretty and pink!

For the sketch taken from the Sketch and Stash blog, I have used a square white card from Anita's, and a lot of stash that I have had for a while. The backing pink card, and the light pink card are bits from the very first box I ever bought from the PaperMill about 2 years ago. I've 'swiss dotted' the pale pink card through the cuttle bug. The scalloped and plain circles were cut with my nestabilities, and the scalloped circle is some gemstone card that I got for Christmas, and I love it!

The image was a freedown load a while ago from The Creative Cottage, and I have printed out the spots and striped paper from part of the Creative Cottage kit. The ribbons were from my stash, and although you can't see them very well I have added 3 clear stones to the middle of the 3 dots on the bottom of the spotted paper. The 'New Home' sentiment was printed out on the PC in gold and cut using lables 4 nestabilities. I really like this card, and have enjoyed following the sketch.
