Kazan's Sketch 15

Kazan has another great sketch posted this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You. It gave me the chance to use these patterned papers I bought a while back when they were on sale at Hobby Lobby. They already had a distressed look to them, so I distressed the cardstock to match. I love it when a card has lots of texture, so I used a corduroy brad, frosted Primas, and sheer ribbon.

Paper: PTI white, Close to Cocoa, The Paper Studio dp
Accessories: flowers (Prima), brad (Imaginisce), ribbon (Dollar Tree), rhinestones (Michael's), distressing tool
