Card Patterns 153 & SSC38 ~ Friendship

Good morning! Hard to believe Monday is already here! Where did the weekend go? Things are a little busy here at the farm. As I post this I have a lamb in my bathtub. And no, I am NOT kidding... Pray for me folks... It could be a LONG week... lol...

Today's sketch challenge is featured at Card Patterns...



And here's my take...



The base is Bazzill and Colorbok card stock. I then used a DP layer (musical paper) by LilyBeeDesign (Head Over Heels). The coordinating panels of DP are from Crate Paper's Portrait Collection and LilyBeeDesign's Head Over Heels. I also incorporated some ecru lace with a layer of Cheery Lynn Designs Queen Anne's Lace Die (black Card stock). Another CLD die cut flourish, pearls, crochet flower and mulberry rose complete the look! The edges were inked with Ranger Distress Ink (Black Soot) after using a Tonic Distressing Tool to "rough" it up! Thanks for visiting and until next time...

Blessings...
