Fussy and Fancy Challenge 60 - Sketch

Happy Friday everyone,
Hope you are all enjoying the easter hols despite the weather, we had a touch of cabin fever by Wednesday as the rain kept coming.....Typical, the last week of term the sun was cracking the flags, but as soon as we get time to spend together, it pours it down! 
Not to be deterred by the horrible weather we have been making the most of the lack of routine, catching up with friends and doing easter make and do activities. It's just great not to have to get up and be somewhere by a certain time!
Anywho, I digress, on to the reason for this post.....
have a new challenge this fortnight
a fab
 sketch
to be precise!

I'm afraid I had to be different and flipped the sketch upside down so I could make the lace edged piece into a tag pocket, so here is my take on the sketch:


A photo showing the tag:


I made this card for my lovely friend Fleur, her birthday was on Wednesday and so it's the first time I've managed to give her a card before I post it on my blog!
I was really pleased as I finally got around to using my sewing machine and sewed a few panels on this card.  I've tried since to do the same on other cards and my machine has decided not to work properly :( so it's back to the drawing board for a while until I've calmed down enough to go back to it so I don't throw it through the nearest window!

The Fussy and Fancy sketch is:
