Day 266 - Super Sketchy Sunday


Happy Saturday!  I'm back with another card for 365 Cards.  I've been trying to finish this month.  Being ill on Thanksgiving has not helped my cause.  I'm hanging in there though.  We were to follow this sketch posted on the website and include a bit of vintage flare.  As I said, I haven't felt the best but I did attempt to produce a card for the challenge.  My thinking was that I should stick as close to the sketch as possible.  Here is my take.  I even tried real stitching.  I can't believe it!  The final card is 5"x7".  The solid colored card stack is Recollections and the patterned paper is Pleasant Pearls from 29th Street. I trimmed the flap which was cut from the Forever Young cart with my new Signo gel pen.  The I popped a button that has hemp tied through it on there.  For the lines at the bottom, I put a string of pearls and a lace-like piece paper cut with a scalloped punch on the bottom. 

Happy Scrappin'!
