The Measure of a Friend ...




This post is for today's Bloggers' Challenge. This week we are working from a sketch, which I posted above. For my project, I selected a berry colored card base and added some matted vintage-inspired background paper rectangles as the sketch calls for. For my focal image, I selected this adorable young lady from Love Letters 1 by Crafty Individuals. The sentiment is also from Crafty Individuals and was a free stamp enclosed when I ordered some other items. I added some ivory lace to the top and bottom rectangles, some vintage buttons, a pearl studded ivory applique and a small bow fashioned from crochet lace. This has been a nail-biter of a day. My precious oldest daughter is in Louisville, KY at a conference and in the path of tornadoes coming across the Ohio Valley. I hope wherever you are, you are safe. Have a wonderful weekend my friends. Best wishes, Yvonne
