Sugar Bowl *28* ~ Marlene's Sketch......

Morning! Today it is time for another sketch challenge over at the Sugar Bowl!! This week Marlene has given us this fab sketch and her option was to use lace!! With lace as the option I of course had to go vintagey and get my card all distressed:
I used the cracked glass technique for my main image. I guess I have the "odd" brain of the bunch as I am the only one who didn't put faces in the 4 boxes!! haha I always knew I wasn't like everyone else!!

Paper: K & Co.
Inks: Distress inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories: lace ~ JoAnn's, flower ~ retro punch

Have you seen the new Manga kids images available at Funky Kits??? Well if you like them you will want to play along as they are the prize for this week!!


Before I go I also want to mention that I have a "Ways to use it" tutorial for nestablilites over at the Whiff of Joy tutorial blog. And if you come back later I will have a sneak peek of a new set by Elizabeth Bell to show you! My fellow DT will as well I am sure!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
