12 days of sketches sketch #9!

Whoo hoo sketch 9!! Finally I made it! I have been working on it since 2pm and its now 5.30pm!!! LOL I made it and took pic and then went ohhh its crap!! I mean it was BAD! So anyway pulled it apart made some adjustments and now I love it! Well maybe not love but I defiantly like it! I was going to show you the other one....but its really quite bad so I dont think I will :) I cant believe we are up to sketch 9 only 3 more sketches to go!! Nooooo. Im a little bit obsessed with the sketches heheh I even have the TGF blog saved on the main screen icon of my iphone so if Im out i can check when new sketch is posted then rush home to start playing hehehe. Anyway I hope you like my take on the sketch!

Some people have been asking what colour distress inks im using so here goes the colours for this card!
Tattered rose, tea dye, weathered wood, faded jeans, milled lavender, dusty concord and black soot. I also used frosted lace stickles which I purchased from the Stamp spot store and the papers are the so jolly magnolia papers from MDU store. TGF stamp is from the TGF online store. Ooh lace is from Mdu too. hehhe I always forget something!!
Cant wait to see sketch 10!!



I couldn't imagine you doing a 'crap' card Kristy. This one has turned out beautifully. I love how you've used the frosted lace stickles. I might go and have a peek at some. Thanks for the links. Your certainly are having fun with these sketches. Good on you!!
