Sketch Saturday Challenge #273

Happy Saturday!  We have a new sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday.  

Our sponsor this week is Prairie Fairy Designs.
 Here is Sketch #273 (designed by Jen):
 Here is my interpretation:

I saw a fence in the border detail of the sketch.  I used a PTI picket fence die that I've had for quite some time.  So nice to finally use it :D

I stamped the fence with a woodgrain background from A|Muse and PTI soft stone ink.  I was hoping for a white washed fence look, with a hint of the woodgrain showing thru.  One more thing I've had for some time and finally used it.
The image is from Oak Pond Creations, an image that I won in a challenge.  This image is called "Marie's Strawberries".  I love strawberries.

  3. Debra! I just wanted to pop in and say hello and that I'm enjoying being on your team as the August Guest designer. Thanks so much for having me. :)

    Mmmmm your card is making me savour in the last few weeks of summer... Now I'm going to go eat as many strawberries as I can! lol

  4. First... really well done on the sketch Debra! I really like the 3-D affect of the fence, and yet again elevated focal point. Thank you for sharing your project in the “Summer Flowers” Challenge!
