Sketch Saturday #363 Pick-A-Sketch

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
DigiStamp Boutique

As May is one of those months with five Saturdays in it - this week you can Pick-A-Sketch from any of Sketch Saturday's previous sketches between #215 and #345.  You can find our past sketches here. You just need to let us know which one you used by including a copy of the sketch in your post.   I remember the first time I used Niki's fab sketch #317.   I liked the card I made for it the first time and I like this one too. 

Don't you love it when you find the perfect image for that special card?   This one is for my most treasured friend, Julie, with whom I have been friends for over 40 years.  
Happy Birthday, Julie!!! 
The image is, I think, a retired one from the lovely talented Krista Smith of Saturated Canary . If that turns out not to be the case, I shall edit this post and make a link only I couldn't find it in Krista's shop.   She is called 'Sara' and she looks just like Julie!  My papers are by Kate & Co. The long leaves are a Poppy Stamps die, the skeleton leaves are Marianne LR0156, the clock works face is also by Marianne CR1234, the little tags are Papertrey Ink,  and the flowers were a gift to me from ...Julie!

My fellow Saturdays have come up with lovely inspiration for you.  Do visit their blogs and share some love with them and then scooch some space on your craft table and join in the fun with us.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Too Cute
Creative Inspirations - Pastel Shades
Deep Ocean - Bingo (I used Flowers, Doily and Sentiment)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes; and
Stamping Sensations - Flower Power
