Lacy and Lovely FMS #124

I'm in the middle of one of my busiest family times at the moment - I have 4 family birthdays over the four weekends. Three are grandchildren, one is my eldest son and three of those birthdays also involve driving out of town for an hour and three-quarters. All very tricky, fitting in the shopping for presents, card making etc. has meant I've been MIA from my blog for more than a week.
I'm about to remedy that with a card for Freshly Made Sketches challenge. It's Karren's first sketch and its a beauty - I know there'll be a lot of entries!

Because I'm supposed to be getting ready for one of those trips out of town this morning, I haven't set up my light box for the photo, so I do hope this isn't too dark. I stamped a panel with Lacy and Lovely stamp set, which I don't actually own (but my lovely upline, Sue Madex does) and she recently held a little gathering for her team where we played with her stamps. I hadn't made anything with this, and I saw Karren's sketch and knew it would be a good fit.

I also used the Decorative Dots Embossing folder from SALE-A-BRATION, and some of the thick coloured twine which is another SALE-A-BRATION freebie. I used the Colour Coach to select this combination of Smokey Slate, Elegant Eggplant and Summer Starfruit. I didn't stamp any of the three lovely greeting stamps that come with Lacy and Lovely, so I pulled out the tried and true Itty Bitty Banners and used the matching dies to quickly cut the banner.
