Distressed and Soft Tones

This card was made for the sketch challenge For Card Patterns. Used pattern papers from Basic Grey Cappella and a CS from stash for the base. The doily is from a pack I had from Wilton that I distressed with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy and Memento Summer Sky Inks. Also distressed edges of base and mat. I cut out a design with Spellbinders Label 4 from one of the pattern papers and attached beneath the edge of the doily. Sentiment is a digital one from Raindrop Echo Designs that I downloaded from Sentimental Sundays. Finished with a ribbon and bow using the Bow Easy and made from my stash of ribbons.
I like the soft, muted colors of this card.

Challenges:
Card Patterns: Sketch 87 shown to right
Sentimental Sundays: Distressed plus a sentiment
Wild Orchids: Pastels
Tuesday Throwdown: Sentimentally yours...use sentiment as focus.
Digital Tuesday Challenge: Use one non-crafting item and a digi. Used a paper doily from baking supplies and a digital sentiment.
