Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good Morning,

Late post today - I was hoping that I'd be able to get day 8 and 9 done for the TGF sketches, but I'm still working on them. So I'll just post my little ol' card that I made for my challenge blog (what a novel idea) in hopes you'll want to join us. The sponsor is Pixie Dust Studio.

The picture isn't that great. I broke one of my lamps last week and I haven't had the chance to replace it. I couldn't believe it, too. I bumped it and it fell and the housing for the bulb shattered!

Anyway, this is my card. I used two images from Kathy's recent release of Forest Friends. I used some very old paper from SU! - the woodgrain paper pack to create my frame. I really wanted an old, distressed look so I inked everything up with Antique Linen Distress Ink (I need a new one, I was really working to get ink off that pad). The sentiment is from CC Designs and then embellished with primas and pearls.

I hope to see you join us at Tuesday Morning Sketches! Thanks for stopping by.

Mel, this card of yours is so cute. Love the way you took the butterfly and made it fluttering over the edge of your frame. I also like the rustic frame!!:) HUGS
