Week #6 - "Sketch This"

Using this photo for inspiration, create a card or project using the sketch as your layout design (you do not need to use these colors).

Note: You must use the Week #6 challenge requirements and DIRECT LINK your project back to The Shabby Tea Room in order to be considered for the weekly prizes. Please only link your card or project POST and not your entire blog or multiple project submissions. Questions? Contact me!

Great inspiration sketch! I am glad I found time to play along this week. I do have a question, do we have to make a "shabby chic" card to play along? I did just in case, but I thought I would ask. Have a great day!!
