Sketch Book






















Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Jo's turn to host and she would like to see 'Use ABC', use alphabet letters other than a sentiment.
Here is what I did, I used a Nicecrane image which you can find here http://nicecranedesigns.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65&products_id=506












and decided to make a sketch book, to keep all my card sketches in one place.  I love this image, it's so sweet.  To hide the binding rings I used little pieces of ribbons and lace knotted round the rings.  There's a fair bit of gold embossing powder too,and flowers made from old book pages.  I went for a Shabby Chic/vintage look to this.

Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
