Sketch Saturday #285

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful

And here is my card using this lovely image from A Day for Daisies called Bewildered.  I love, love, love Tammy's images at ADFD but I do find myself a bit scared of colouring their hair and this one was particularly tricky.
I love my Papertrey Ink die cut flower and stamp and the pretty paper from the Antiquity pack by The Paper Studio. Oddly, I decided to use hair colours that coordinated with the designer paper and I think I should have made a red flower to coordinate with this pretty lady's lips but I needed to use gold for the challenge at time...

Do please share some love with my fellow Saturdays and come and play along with us.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
A Day for Daisies - use some gold (I haven't used a shiny gold but my DP and my flower are both gold coloured);
Crafty Creations - dies and punches (my flower is a die but the scalloped edge beneath my image is actually made from multiple circles from a punch)
Charisma Cardz - vintage

Stunning card Lesley. Great job on the hair. Hugs, Deb

For a girl who said she was intimidated by A Day for Daisies images - you have totally rocked this one! It is positively stunning, Lesley. I love everything about it! Personally, I think a red flower might have pulled the eye away from your image and your fabulous coloring. It was perfect to make her eyelids bright blue. It caught my attention visually right away. Outstanding! Hugs, Cathy xx

Very sophisticated Lesley. I think the card looks perfect just as it is. I has a classy look to it that would be lost with a red flower. Take care hon.
