Laura's Sketch 18

For Laura's sketch this week, I decided to use some more of my yummy Urban Prairie papers. I stamped the bird, and the sentiment is a rub-on. I added the ribbon and distressed all the edges to finish it off.

Stamps: Always (SU)
Paper: Basic Black, PTI white, BasicGrey Urban Prairie

Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Nestabilities circles, rub-on (SU), ribbon (Michael's), brads (BasicGrey), distressing tool

This IS a pretty card! I used to have always and I traded it for unfrogettable, which I could kick myself for doing. Agh. That Urban Prairie paper rocks as well - just can't find it though :(
