Thinking of You

Happy Saturday! We are having a lovely sunny morning with a wonderful sound of melting snow dripping off the roof. There is hope! There will be spring and eventually summer!

Prickley Pear has a sketch challenge up and running – open for all, no prickley products needed. So if you have a spare minute to craft this weekend – come play with us! Here is all the info! And here is the sketch:

I felt more like squares and straight lines than circles today so I went with a rectangle  panel for my card:

Thinking of you

The panel is made out of cardstock colored with gesso, distress ink and some mist. I tied twine around it and some silver thread and then covered it all in Utee in layers. It was fun!

Thinking of you två

The stamps used are Coffee Stain and a sentiment from Clearly Beautiful Butterflies Set.

I was inspired by the paper brooches on this page for my card – I did this for the Inspiration Challenge over at SCS.

Thanks for stopping by!
