Sorry for the day with out me! ;)

I've had quite an eventful week and am trying to balance all of my blogs!  BUT, I did take some time to create some cards!  I'll show just one per post, as I've used the same sketch and would like to enter them both into the sketch challenge.

Here it is~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~





This card was really fun to make.  It's not my "usual" style, but I think it looks so pretty and elegant!  To make my doily more distressed and shimmery, I sponged it with brown ink and then glimmer misted it.  For the image panel, I stamped the rose image in a pale aqua and then stamped the sentiment over it in brown.  Some buttons, ribbon, and twine and there you have it!

Thanks for joining me today--keep a look out for the other card!  It'll be posted soon, I promise!  Happy stamping! :)
