Kenny K Blog Hop with Sketch n Stash and a Spoon Full of Sugar from My Mum's Craft Shop

Kenny K is celebrating it's first year anniversary with a massive blog hop and awesome prizes with an "anything goes" challenge theme.   Having played along with the hop and seen so many absolutely gorgeous makes with the new releases, I decided on the fabulous "sketch" at Sketch n Stash for the basis of my card.  I used the image instead of the tall thin central strip and I moved the circle to the side so that it wouldn't conceal all of the panel behind it but hopefully the sketch is still visible.   My Kenny K image is new, bought especially for this challenge.  Isn't she fab!  And my papers are relatively new from the Prima Melody pack.  I haven't used this combo before but I wanted to use mostly "pink and brown" in keeping with the colour challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar.  I added some gem swirls and three tiny pearls in the bottom left hand corner for the "pearls and swirls" theme at My Mum's Craft Shop.
My Mum left yesterday after a two week stay.  We had a lovely time.   We went to see War Horse in London on Saturday and then out for  meal.  It was a great day but she was especially tired aferwards.   During her stay, she has been making me little crocheted flowers with some new yarn I purchased.  Adding some punched leaves, I have used three of them on this card.  Aren't they pretty?  My image is coloured with Copics and my sentiment is by Stampin Up.
