Lizzie Anne Sketch Time!

It's my turn to host the Lizzie Anne Designs sketch challenge this week. I kept things very simple, using the Bonjour set and kraft card stock. I'm obsessed with kraft card stock! My extra twist for the sketch this week is to actually stamp the background scallops, not use an edge punch to make them. I chose the medallion image from the set to make mine, but Lizzie Anne Designs has several other options too - check Warmest Wishes for a vintage lace border, Turn Towards the Sun for some pretty scallops, and Timeless Textures (a sixlets set) for some awesome edges! I could've also gone with the fleur de lis in the Bonjour set, but I liked the medallion for this card. I dirtied up all the edges, to mimic the aged Curio (Basic Grey) paper. To finish the card off I added three glazed brads in the lower corner, and wrapped some twine around the card front above the image.
I hope you have time to play along with us this week! Remember to post your creation over on the Lizzie Anne Designs Facebook page, so we can all see it!
