Thought i'd make a card for a new challenge blog i stumbled upon which is the Bee Crafty challenge blog and their theme for this week is a sketch, i have also combined it with this weeks MTTC challenge which is embossing.
The embossing is a cuttlebug embossing die which i brushed over with chalk, the rose is decoupaged.
