Crafts 4 Eternity - Sketch 36

I'm really happy with this card, it took a lot of thought & effort but it turned out just how I hoped in the end. That's quite unusual for me! I love the sketch at Crafts 4 Eternity this week, but it turned out to be quite difficult to find a background shape I could adapt for the sketch. I only have one set of Nesties & they were too small to fit this framed image inside. So I used a sample of a larger one I had as a template, I cut it out & then glued embroidery thread around it to hide any imperfections & add a bit of extra texture. I have lovely Dena to thank again for these fabby MME papers. The image is from Sugar Nellie coloured with Distress Inks & the sentiment is from Stamps Away. I think it turned out so well because it is the card I will be giving my Dad for Father's Day this weekend. He reads the paper from cover to cover everyday. Ooh to have that kind of time! Is it wrong to yearn for retirement so ardently at 38? I keep doing the lottery, but so far have never won more than a tenner! I know I have the winning numbers, :-) I just do not know which week they are going to come up! :-(
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
