Charisma Cardz - sketch

Good afternoon all,

I hope you are all well.  It's the weekend here so i am happy! No more 7 am school runs for two days and hopefully some sleep! Think i had about 3 hours sleep last night, the more i tried, the more awake i got! Surely tonight can only be an improvement.

Firstly, my apologies cos i am 3 hours late with my post but today has been one of those days when i have been going from pillar to post, one taxi to another since 9 am and i have just got back home.

Anyway, enough about me, the reason you are here is because there is a fantastic new challenge over at Charisma Cardz.

This week there is a sketch to follow which was chosen by Natalie.

The sponsor is Redonkulous Designs.

Here is my DT card for this week's challenge....

6x6 scalloped card base by UK Craft
Brown polka dots designer paper (Echo Park) & Beige embossed polka dots card stock (u/k), Brown cardstock for mat is Bazzill
