I'm finally feeling better and made a card!

I am finally felling a lot better and have got back into cardmaking. I thought I was feeling better on Tuesday but it only lasted a few hours but I have felt okay most of the day today so made the most of it and got a card made. I did do another 2 but they are for design work so can't show them just yet.
This one is for the Cute Daisy May challenge which is a sketch this week. Anyone who visits me regularly will know that I love sketches so I had to join in.
I didn't spend too much time on this card because I wanted to get it finished quickly incase I started to feel ill again.
I have used one of my Cute Daisy May downloads that I managed to salvage from my computer after it wiping nearly everything on it. I bought this one along with another 2 (well I bought 2 and Linnie gave me 1 free) and they were all in a folder on their own so I manged to keep these ones but the rest of them have vanished so I didn't have much choice of which sheet to use. I suppose that was good though because when I had lots of them I never knew which sheet to use lol.
I was going to just cut a square around the image but I wasn't paying attention and cut it really squint lol, so I just cut around it then realised I would never be able to cut around the balloon string and the dogs lead so I just cut them all out seprately and used some threads for the string and lead instead. I am quite glad I made a mistake cutting it because I like the look of the thread on it, gives it a little more detail :)

Papers: spotty black is Bo Bunny, red is Cosmo Cricket and the black embossed paper is handmade paper from Artymiss.
Image: Digital sheet from Cute Daisy May
Colouring: Copics
Embelishments: Prima flowers, black gems from Ebay appprox 50 for 45p!!
sentiment from a die cut sheet from Artymiss

Hope you are all having a great weekend. I am trying to catch up with everyone and come see what you have been up to but it may take a while to get round everyone!
Oh I almost forgot to say, I got an award from Linda the other day but haven't felt well enough to post it on here but it is in my sidebar. Thank you hun it does mean a lot ot me and I will post it properly as soon as I have caught up with everything and though about who I will pass it on to :)
