Sketch Time at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning my lovely blogging friends. Bet you're glad it's the weekend. 
Hope the weather is better than it has been most of this week - the garden needs a really good tidy up before John goes away next week. 
We also have a test drive booked on Sunday afternoon - John's getting a new car and I'm having his current one - which may not seem like a good deal but the sweetener is I get to keep the proceeds from the sale of my car :o)

Anyway enough waffle - the real reason I'm here is to share my DT card for the new challenge over at 

and this week Team Gems had this sketch to play with:

Janet has recently released some gorgeous Vintage Girl images and some beautiful Shabby Chic Design Papers and I couldn't resist having a playing with them:

Absolutely beautiful card, love the image and papers and gorgeous colours and those flowers with the pearls finish it off a treat. There is nothing wrong with John's car, I think you have a very good deal there and think of all that money you will get from the proceeds of your 206 cabriolet :O) Have a lovely weekend hun. Hugs, Claire xx
