I treated myself a while ago to some of the Lili of the Valley Simply Print sheets - this one is called Put Your Feet Up.  I printed it directly onto some linen effect white card and then used watercolour pencils to add some background to the image.

I've used some kraft card and layered distressed pieces of Dovecraft 6x6 Back To Basics True Blue paper (I seem to have a lot of 6x6 paper packs in my stash - I blame The Works for having such good offers on them!)

I've added a fine liner black pen border to the edges plus all the buttons and waxed cord are from my stash; the sentiment I printed on my pc.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Brown Sugar:  Anything Goes
Simply Papercraft:  Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday:  Anything Goes
Seize The Birthday:  Anything Goes
Sweet Sketch Wednesday:  Sketch followed
