Friday Sketchers 47

I'm on a roll this week, three cards for three different challenges. I do love being on holiday! This one is for Friday Sketchers challenge 47. It's a great sketch from Jacqueline, and the sponsor this week is Stempelstudio who are offering a great set of stamps called 'Farm' from the Greetings Farm as a prize.

For this card I used:

SU Paper & cardstock and sentiment
HOTP Swirls stamp
Sugar Nellie Image stamp
Sizzix Frame
Faber Castell watercolour pencils
Ribbon from stash
Handmade roses

I did a bit of distressing around the edge of the paper using Walnut Stain distress ink from Rangers and added some liquid pearls around the frame.
