Forever Friends Fortnight Sketch

Hellooooo everyone!

Im back with another DT creation for Forever Friends Fortnight challenge (I still cant believe I'm on a DT!! Thanks again Sande!!)

This week we are sponsored by Crafts U Love and they have kindly donated a  £15 voucher!
They carry a great range of Forever Friends products as well as lots of other craft goodies :)

The challenge is a sketch by Sande and here it is

And this is what I came up with

I really really don't like it :( for one I have no idea why I went with green (its not as dark IRL btw!) and two its faaaar too big, should have used a 5 by 5 instead of 6.
Oh well cant win them all I suppose.
All the elements, except the roses which are from Wild Orchid Crafts that have been coloured with a promarker and stickled, are from the Forever Friends Springtime collection.
The bear and duck are decoupaged up and add an extra bit of dimension.

I am proud of myself for sticking to the sketch tho lol. I sometimes get stuck when using sketches and end up doing my own thing but this sketch was really nice to work with!
So if you join in with us this fortnight you have the chance to win a fab prize from
Head on over to Forever Friends now and check out the rest of the fabulous work by our DT :)
