Something Old, Something New, Something Blue

As you know, I do like sketches and once again I've used a Sweet Sketch Wednesday for inspiration. The image is by Lee Jacobs and it's been bought from CraftsUPrint and I've coloured it with Promarkers plus a little glitter glue here and there although its difficult to see on the photo.
The papers are off-cuts from making a wedding wordbook and are from the I Do! Wedding download from Funky Hand. I've used a Martha Stewart punch for the fancy bits and dotted liquid pearls in the spaces. All the flowers are from Hobbycraft and are a fairly recent purchase. The ribbon I found in my stash and was just the right size! I've made the hat pin with some faux pearl beads from a necklace I bought in a charity shop with the intention of chopping it up and using the elements.

And if you've not already popped over to the Fetch A Sketch pre launch party - please do so but be quick as it ends on Sunday 26 June! Some candy on offer to two lucky commenter's plus some extra prizes along the way! The Fetch A Sketch challenges launch on Monday 27 June at 9am!
