Woo-hoo! This card was featured on this week's Stampers Showcase over at Stamping 411!! Thanks to all the operators who enjoyed my entry!
Hooray for Saturday and for this weeks' Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge!! Take a peek at the great sketch on offer for this week and pull out your cardstock -- it's fabulous and it's fun.
I added the bit of distressed scallop trim at the top of the center layer and the Cherry Cobbler card base for balance, but those were the only changes I made. I had never tried to distress a scallop border before and I really like the results!
I created my own faux notebook paper for the botanical "sketch". If you look closely, there is a touch of Rose Red seam binding under the bottom edge of the Cherry Cobbler seam binding. It adds a little dimension, I think.
Lots of little details here -- trinket key, the tiny tag with the "friends" sentiment, the library binder clip, a bit of linen thread and the aged copper brads.
