365 Cards - Challenge 169

Well it's Super Sketchy Sunday over at 365 Cards. I love SSS! Pam gives us some great layouts to start with - and I love seeing how everyone interprets the same sketch and puts their own twist on it!

Isn't this a great sketch? Seriously, if you haven't already - go check out the design team's cards. Awesome!

I found today's challenge exceptionally easy - because I was inspired (again) by great paper! This paper obsession is becoming a problem. My Amex has just about reached its melting point this month. LOL

I just received this Anna Griffin Sierra cardstack in the mail on Friday, and I was itching to use it. Gorgeous! I love the matte look, and the country colours. This paper is so great with raffia - which of course I just had to use!

A metal ribbon slide from the dollar store is the final finishing touch.

Have a scrappy day!!
