Hi all, I made this for a friend her lost her Dad last week. I used a "Lord have Mercy" sketch but missed the posting date. Darn! I hate that. I was last weeks sketch challenge.

I am entering this is the Shabby Tea Room "Old meets New" challenge for this week. The button is old. The rest is fairly new. I have only been paper crafting for 2 years so most of my stuff is new. BUT, that divine paper from Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry line is kinda vintage. God, is it gorgeous!
I embossed the cream colored CS which is textured like watercolor paper. So pretty! I purposely stamped the SU flower image lightly with chalk ink so it could look watercolored then stamped the sentiment over it in brown (momento rich cocoa).
I used some cream ribbon I got at Joannes (?) and some bakers twine in brown/white. Did you get some yet? It's very "in" right now! I got mine from Papertrey but could kick myself cuz a day later Die Cuts R us had it cheaper and in lots of pretty colors.
Thanks for looking.
