Hearts and Ribbons

Yesterday the new sketch went live over on The Sketch File - it would be fab if you'd have a look and even better if you'd join in with us and make something using the sketch - doesn't matter what sort of crafting you do, or what sort of thing you make - the more the merrier.
I've made a card for the newly released Funky Hand download collection I Heart You using the sketch.  Using a "congratulations" sentiment means it could be for pretty much any special occasion.  
Here's the sketch
and a full view of the card
All papers (background papers and those used to make the flowers) by Funky Hand  from the "I Heart You" download collection
Green card for Leaves, Pink Heart shaped gems, faux brads made with scraps of the same FH papers

I think that my crafty mojo, which has stayed away during recent weeks, despite my being confined to the study during the early stages of the building work seems to be coming back. I've got a few things I really want to get down to making, and as the power is about to go off while our electrician does some work on the new electrickery stuff, I'm going to sit at my desk and put plans into action!
