sketch saturday #60

Well I have made loads of cards today but all DT stuff because I need to get ahead with all my DT cards before I go away on Friday, so been trying to make all the cards for the 10 days we are away so I can just publish them when I'm gone. I got a lot of it done today but couldn't post everything so I decided to leave the rest until tomorrow and play along with Sketch Saturday.

While I was visiting Barry's Mum on Tuesday, I had a sneeky trip to the craft shop. I said I was only going to the local shop and took a detour hehe.
I was good though and only spend £10! I gota few 12x12 papers and some gorgeous two tone little roses. To be honest there wasn't much more that I wanted. It's only a tiny shop and sells things that they have had for years except they have some lovely 12x12 designer papers but they are all in boxes on the floor and she has them in plastic pockets in binders so you have to get down on your hands and knees and look through all the folders, so that was really the reason I only bought a few sheets.
Anyway I used one of the new Basic Grey ones I got on this card and found a scrap of another Basic Grey sheet in my scrap box. The Tilda and nestie labels I got in a rak and I just inked the labels. The sentiment is Stampin Up, flowers are Primas and everything else from my stash. I am also entering this one into the Just Magnolia challenge as they are asking for buttons which I have used 3 of :)
I'm not sure if I like this card, hmmm really not sure at all. This is certainly not in my colour comfort zone but I challenged myself to use Copic colours that I never use because most of the colours I do use are running out lol.
I'm off to bed now as it's nearly 2am here! Nite nite
