Hi everyone! It's sketch week over at Less is More and this is what I did with it.

Kept everything very clean and simple. I ended up using vintage cream cardstock as the base of the card as it went very well with the recycled shopping bag that I used. I left the tattered top of the bag alone as it added interest since I turned it up side down.

Butterfly die is from Memory Box. I wanted a very subtle yellow for my butterfly and couldn't find any light yellow in my stash of cardstock. So, I got out my Studio G light yellow stamp pad and went direct to paper with the color to get this final result.

The "hello" sentiment is from Stampin Up! Endless Birthday Wishes set.

OK, off to finish laundry while still fighting this cold/flu. I'm about done with it! Thanks for stopping by!

Brilliant - I think I have "saved" a couple of beautiful printed bags - very very pretty.
