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

Good afternoon!  After what seems like forever I am back.   School is out and summer has finally arrived!  We spent the weekend cleaning- inside and out. 

Friday afternoon I received a wonderful package in the mail from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I recently won a challenge they sponsored and the prize was fabulous!! I will be sharing some of my winnings over the next few days on my cards.  If you have never shopped with them you really should.  I purchased from them a few months back and I had my order in 1 week!! Not bad for having to come across the pond.

Todays card is for the sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches. They provided this awesome sketch:
I just loved this paper when I spotted it in the store.  It's by Kaiser Crafts and I used the reverse side for my "stitched" piece and the accent piece at the bottom.  All card stock is by Stampin Up, as is the stamps.  This stamps are from the Vintage Vogue set.  I used dark chocolate brown pigment ink and distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.

Thanks for stopping by-hope to see you tomorrow:)
