Ismaki #25

..was a beautiful and challenging sketch by guest DT Malin. I had gone to JoAnn's to pick up some ribbon and found these 70% off!!
I totally loved them both and they were the last ones left!! Not usually my luck! But I showed this because that was my inspiration for my "shabby" card!!




I made the base of it but then had the hardest time finding the right image to go on it!! I went through 3 different ones. The problem was I didn't have the exact magenta color to match and it was really irking me!!! Finally figured this went on long enough and just stuck with this Sarah Kay image. The paper is from the K & Co. Classic K paper pad. The flowers are from a cuttlebug diecut. i went around the outside with my glitter pen. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and it says Count your Blessings. It is tough to see as they are pretty little sentiments. I really enjoyed creating the layout with this sketch though!!
This is late as we had a bad thunderstorm last night and the power went out!! So here I finally got it up!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!
