New Sketch and Stash Challenge

Click on image to enlarge

This is the other card to support another blogging friend, Chrissie, with her first challenge as part of the DT for Sketch and Stash Challenge. It's a two part challenge, the first part being the sketch and the second part being to use a new piece of stash and will take plece fortnightly.
Well, apologies, but I couldn't resist another stampscape scene because I've been wanting to try one with this colour way and also, I just like doing them! The new elements here are the boulders stamp in the foreground of the picture and the flower which I cut from a stem that I got from our local garden centre. Our challenge hosts have asked us to let you know the make or manufacturer with a link if possible. All the stamps used here are by stampscapes and I buy mine from
I've kept the card simple to allow the scene to speak for itself so the base card is a burgundy leather effect and the matt is cream hammered with a strip of gold metallic ribbon across the middle. What doesn't show in the photo is that I've added sakura clear stardust pen to the cut out parts from the corner punch with gives a very subtle wee bit of sparkle.
Thank you for dropping by today and I'm always interested in your opinion.
