Delightful Challenges

** Please scroll down to see my card for MTME Pretty Pattern **

Hi!  Thanks for coming back.  This week's challenge at Delightful Challenges is all about...

Someone Special

Now, this is so open for interpretation.  The someone special in life are several people.  All the people that I love and miss.  My sisters, my cousin, some friends that I don't see anymore.  So I created a card that summarizes how I feel.

I again attempted a vintage card, not sure I'm happy with the tea dye distress ink, I think I really prefer old paper.  I also was inspired by one of my sister's friend and fan, Jessi to create my own crocheted border.  She made the sweetest mats for my sister and I studied it and then came up with my own.  You like?  I also used some highly hoarded chocolate brown velvet ribbon.

Ink: Desert Sand (Memento), Tea Dye Distress Ink
