Thx :: 2 Sketches 4 You

It was a wonderful weekend, though I did not do any crafting.

There are a couple of things I want to work on this week:
But for my first card of the week, it's a 2 Sketches 4 You sketch. For this card, I pulled out lots of oldies: the chipboard w/THX is something I made eons ago and never used; the flower I pulled from a fake flower bouquet; the ribbon is American Crafts that I finally broke open; the dark patterned paper is from K&Co, but it was a card that I just cut in half to use for this card and the pink lace I purchased @ Walmart over a year ago. I like the card for that reason - using up stuff that I have but rarely use.

Interestingly, I did not distress or sew on this card, but ooooh, did I want to!

Thanks for looking ... here's what I used:
cardstock and flowers: craft supply
patterned paper: K&Co. and Creative Imaginations
chipboard and button: Bazzill
ribbon: American Crafts
rubons (THX): Making Memories
other: Modge Podge
