Here's a card for today's sketch challenge - a great opportunity to mix dp's which I love to do. The edges of the card base have been sponged with distress ink to add to the retro look - if I could have just one stamp pad besides Memento Tuxedo Black, it would be Ranger Distress Antique Linen, I really like how it adds just a touch of color to make paper look like it's been in Grandma's attic for years. The flower is made using a Papertrey ink die, the sentiment is Verve, and most of the dp is October Afternoon

Fabulous card Bridget. Love the flowers. May need to buy that particular die. I also love the Antique Linen and you used it in a really interesting way. You are right. It gives an old look to your background paper. Love all the dp too.

Bridget this is so lovely. I love all that dp and you chose great patterns to blend! And the sewing really adds character. I like to sew on cards and in scrapbooking, but I'm to lazy to take my sewing machine out of it's case, set it up and sew; and my craft room isn't large enough to let it stay up all the time. What a cheerful, cheerful card. Faving it.
