My image is one of the fab images over at Scribbles Designs - It's called Carl's Pad.  If you click on the images above they should take you straight there.  I've used the sketch (with a wee tweak) from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It looks like this

and this is how the finished card looks

Think there might be a lager and lime calling me about now so hope to see you all soon x
