Celebrate today

 Hello everyone!!
Over at Freshly Made Sketches they have a challenge going on.  Sketch #11, hostess is Linda C.  Check out all the fun!
 This afternoon it has been dark and rainy, although it is a nice day to stamp.  The stamp sets that I used are from Papertrey, friendship jar and background basic text style.  Designer paper is My Mind's Eye and Pretty Please.  I hand cut out the jar topper and paper pieced the tag.  Did some decorative stitching and on the marina mist cardstock I brushed the edges to make the paper darker, with the same ink.  Then I finished the card by adding a button and some twine.  Thanks Linda for a great sketch!


Have a wonderful night!
