Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #71

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We are having a more relaxed week here...if that's even possible!  We are gearing up for a busy weekend though.  

Wednesdays are good days though and bring many good things!  One of the best things about Wednesdays is the new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week the lovely and talented Linda Callahan has a great sketch for us.  I must admit this one had me!  Usually it's the circles that get me but the tag did it for me this week!

Okay...I think I broke every rule of a Freshly Made Sketches card when I made mine so maybe don't follow my lead!!!  I am not usually a cluttered, shabby, vintage look girl (as you probably know).  I tend to stick to the clean and simple look.  I'll probably get fired for this one!!!  I have seen some great shabby/chic cards during the last few weeks and wanted to give one a try.  I also had this flower left that I really wanted to use up!
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Primrose Petals
DSP: First Edition, Tea for Two
Stamps: Itty Bitties
Ink: Primrose Petals
Other: Artisan Embellishment Kit, Designer Builder Brad, Flower (Prima), Sanding Block, Distressing Tool, Stapler

Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog to check out the amazing Design Team creations!

Have a great day!
