Smelling the Roses...

Hi again everyone,
as promised here is the second card I started yesterday and finally managed to finish today. I was in a real fairytale mood so decided to ink up the beautiful 'Longing Tilda' and 'Castle Window' I wanted a vintage feel so I chose the new Capella papers from Basic Grey, distressed it with Walnut Stain ink and added lots of faux stitching.
The sketch comes from Allsorts Challenge blog and was really good fun to use.
I am entering this card in the following challenges: - Challenge #57 'A Little Sketchy' - Challenge #60 'In The Garden' - Challenge #23 'Pretty as a Princess' - Challenge #72 'It's a Stitch Up' - Challenge #35 'Sugar and Spice' - Challenge #108 'Enjoying the Sunshine'
