Life Happens Over Coffee

Good morning; I'm back with a new challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week Jessi has chosen her favorite sketch from last year and she is also our sponsor; it's also a judged challenge, so there is the additional twist of "Tone on Tone/Monochromatic".  Guess what you'll be playing for?  Jessi's amazing crocheted mats...in Valentine colors!  I am guessing you will want to play along (wink)!

I've made a shabby chic style card today...I thought it would go perfectly with the crocheted mat; I've done some distressing and paper piecing, then embellished with a flower and some mini brads.  Sometimes it's fun to go grubby!

Image/Sentiment: Verve "Better With You"
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber
Paper: SU! Blushing Bride, PTI Dark Chocolate, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: Prima Flower, Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Crochet Mat by Jessi Fogan, EK Success 3D Dots

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations: Anything Goes/Feminine
Incy Wincy Designs: Add Texture

Thank you for stopping by!

Cute card Angela. Seems you are very busy cardmaking with a new card everyday. This one is great and I do love those doiley's. Great design and papers.

Every time I pull out my distress tools I channel you! Or try to, at least. LOVE this!!
