Greetings from New Zealand

For some reason, I felt like creating a New Zealand themed card this week. 

The card has been based on the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday:

And this is the sketch:

For this card, I have used paper from Rosies Studio.  The image comes from Anji's Antics and was inspired by a photo I took at the Canterbury Museum.  Anji was stuck for inspiration and requested blog visitors to send her some photos.  I posted a number on my blog for her and at the last minute decided to add the kiwi photo.  I'm glad now that I did as this is the one that inspired her.

Back to the card.... I have used black cardstock for matting throughout the card.  I have added some lace, a flower and some red crystal stickers.  I had these lovely diamond shaped black rhinestones that I was originally going to use but they just got lost on the paper that I had chosen.
