Beau Chateau Shabby

I tried to capture the texture of this card IRL, but couldn't quite get it with my photo.  The top Marina Mist layer was embossed with the Square Lattice and the Oval Designer Frames Textured Impressions embossing folders.  I then ran the in-line pearls from Basic Pearl Jewels around the outer embossed oval, creating the frame for the garland.

Saturday Sketch Challenge #253

It's been a long time since I've posted a new project here.  All I can say is that I've been busy with my daughter's horse shows and getting the gardens ready.

Here's my take on this weeks' Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411.  This is a very versatile sketch and the Operator's really knocked this one out of the park!
