Creative Scrappers Challenge #88

This is the LO which I did using this weeks sketch. I always mean to do this challenge, but the week gets away from me. So this week I sat down first thing and didn't get up until it was done. I am really happy with it. I like to work with sketches because the take all of the worry about composition away.

I used Sassafrass Lass Papers on Coredinations Chocolate box cardstock. I then added some trim from my stash and some twine to the top of the LO. The buttons were also from my stash.

I distressed the edges of the cardstock and papers and did some Faux stitching around all of the pieces.
