The Right Direction

SCS had a wonderful sketch challenge today for the CAS72 challenge; I couldn’t wait to play!  The Shabby Tea Room also had a “Comfort Cottage” inspiration challenge for Week 15:

Photo inspiration #15

I loved the country vintage feel of this photo, so I pulled out some of the new Graphic 45 paper I got, On The Boardwalk, and another Artistic Outpost image:

I tried to keep it clean and simple, but I just had to add a really cool vintage fabric-covered button I found in my grandmother’s button tin as well as some linen thread.  The image was stamped in Stazon, overstamped with the Linen background stamp in the new Crumb Cake ink, and then shaded with Dusty Durango and More Mustard inks.  I think this would make a good graduation card, but I doubt most grads would appreciate “vintage”!!!  TFL!
