Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

This is a super fast post- I need to get this entered for this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketches.  They provided a great sketch this week and I had this card envisioned since Tuesday and finally got it done.
My image is from Sugar Creek Hollow and although the image was size rather small it is very legible in person.

My background dp is from Basis Grey origins and though it already has a distressed look and did a little additional distressing and sewed the edges. The note paper is from a fabulous pad I picked up at Michaels and I don't know the name but I love it!  I distressed this too and also sewed along the edges.  My image is printed in brown ink on champagne paper and was lightly accented with color pencils. I used a bit gem brad on my ribbon and my new bow easy.  I have to admit it took me numerous attempts to figure out the bow easy but now I love it.

I was trying for a very vintage look for this card and think I've achieved it!
See you tomorrow for Sunshine Monday!
