Another SFYTT


Good morning and Happy Saturday!

I wanted to try Jen's Sketch For You To Try this week and

I turned the sketch on its side and made a vintage card :

I used the Pedalling Past stamp set for the bike and sentiment and Vintage Labels for the medallion

I distressed the heck out of all the layers with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distressing inks.  And see that incredibly awesome patterned paper in the background?   Its NEW from Stampin' Up! ... Newsprint DSP available in July

I added a few rows of  wandering straight stitch to give it some texture and some jumbo eyelets to finish off the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
