365 Cards Day 141 Super Sketchy Sunday

The sketch looked a little daunting at first, but after having looked at the fabulous examples from the design team, this idea popped into my head.
I was a little worried whether the card would go into my corner rounder to cut the double thickness at the top of the card, but fortunately it worked like a dream.
Lots of punches were used for this card. The leaves are Leonie Em, the border is Martha Stewart and the flowers are made from a Woodware punch.
The sentiment is from Unity stamps. Another Kit Club shipment is on its way... I can't wait for it to arrive!

I had been working with a lot of red as I had just made this Ruby Wedding card for friends whose Anniversary is on my birthday next Sunday! They are celebrating by having a cruise on the river near Oxford. Should be fun! I used a new set of Stampin Up tulip stamps, part of my purchase on eBay that the fab daisy stamp came from, which I posted yesterday.
I could do with instruction on how to exploit all the stamps to their potential, but couldn't spot any Stampin Up videos on You Tube to help me.
The sentiments on this card were computer generated.
