And Finally ...

papertake 20044 I have actually done a different sketch! This one was courtesy of Dawny P on the Papertake weekly challenge.  You can view the original sketch here!

The lady in the card was inspired by a sample card that I saw at Ally Pally. This is another of my older stamps and I had not used her in a while ... but when I saw her coloured and decoupaged up ... I just had to give it a go!

I am ashamed to say I don't know the ladies name Papertake 2004 that gave me the inspiration but I can tell you she is at all the shows and mainly sells Penny Black stamps ... Her samples are always stunning!

Anyways if you recognise this fabulous description :0)) Please  let me know her name and I will give her the credit in this post!

Enough waffling ... the black and gold were really hard to photograph so sorry for the poor quality piccies ... I actually made the card last night and in daylight I can see areas that require a bit of touching up ... but hopefully you will get the general idea!

Edit: Apparently the very talented lady that inspired me is Julia - so Thank you Julia
