Tuesday Morning Sketches #260

Good Morning!  It's Tuesday!  Yay!  I really love the sketch that Jessi created for us this week.  I have an obsession with twine... hoarding it.  I never use it.  My sister gave me a gift certificate for Sweet n Sassy for my birthday on year to buy every color of twine they offered... and I did (just about).  I only use bits of it here and there.  It looks so pretty in my collection.

But here's the card I created using A Stamp of Friendship digi by our sponsor, Your Next Stamp.  The image itself has the stamp with the stamp edge, but I cut that part off and cut a stamp shape mat because I really wanted a metallic edge.  I embossed the mat with gold and then mounted the image to that.  I love how it turned out.

The image also has a button in the design, but I colored it and then adhered a button over top, using a bit of twine.  I hope you like it!

Now, come join us at TMS.
