Sweet Gretchen!

Today's Ismaki sketch is by the talented Manue and the option is to use ribbon. As soon as I seen the longer skinny panel I knew I wanted to use Gretchen. She is a sneak peek for one of Korin's may releases at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I also got some of this honey pie paper from Cosmo Cricket this week-end and just had to use it!! I also used Prima flowers with dew drop centers and a buckle from Crafty Secrets. I went over the flowers and buckle with my glitter pen. I used brown ribbon to look like stems. I also distressed all the edges with some distress ink. The sentiment is one I had laying around and don't remember who it is from. (sorry) Hopefully I will get some more crafting done since it is a dreary day and I did spring cleaning all day yesterday!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
