Egyptian Delight

Good Morning Peeps,
We have had so much rain here over the past few days it's hard to believe that there is a drought! I am printerless at the moment which is like losing a life support machine! There is a new one on the way which should have arrived on Saturday but is being delivered by Royal Mail and guess what - it didn't come. This means it will arrive today when we are both out and will be taken to the post office for collection which is a nightmare for us to get to! GRRRRRRR!
Anyway onto happier things. Today over at INCY WINCY designs our new challenge is a sketch created by our very talented Samantha and our generous sponsor this week is.....

Here is Samantha's sketch....

And here is may take on the sketch using Bonnie of the Nile

I love this sketch and it's one I will use over and over again. I also love this beautiful image and will definitely use this again many times.

The image is coloured with Promarkers
The beautiful papers are part of a downloaded pack from Heart of Wisdom and is full of Egyptian papers and icons.
The fine border was made with a memory box die ( a birthday present from my lovely stepdaughter).
The corners were from Wild Orchid Crafts and the brads and ribbon were from a local craft shop.
I used an X cut die for the image.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.
Make It Monday- always anything goes
Ribbon Carousel - use colours you might not normally use.
2 sisters -use a digital image
One Stitch At A Time Anything goes

Our DT have made some gorgeous projects, please take the time to visit their individual blogs and leave a comment.

Have a fun time with this sketch and enjoy your day.

Hugs Sheryl xxx
