Friday Sketchers #18.. a beautiful sketch by Jacqueline. I really enjoyed making a card with this sketch!! I have to admit I was intimidated at first but I made it alittle my own and like the end result!! I found these papers at Micheals and wanted to use them!! I think the colors are so soft and pretty!! This is another card for my niece who lives too far away!! The beautiful crochet flower was an "extra" in a swap from Rach. Thanks again girlie I so love everything:)

Paper: Making Memories
Stamps: Rachelle Anne Miller, sentiment ~ Sweet 'n Sassy stamps
Inks: Distressed Inks
Accessories: Flowers ~ Prima, spacers and brads ~ Micheals, Ribbon ~ making memories, tag ~ cuttlebug

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a great Monday! Off to clean the house. I am a day behind and I hate getting behind then I feel overwhelmed!! Those girls of mine have to much "stuff". Wonder where they get that from (LOL)!!

Beautiful card! Great how you made it your own, because I can't see that you had some trouble first. The card is great!!! Love all the details what gives a little altered/romantic look. Thanks for playing with my sketch on FS!! Love from Holland,
