My Sheri Crafts #89

Here is a very simple card I made for My Sheri Crafts.  We were asked to create any project based on the image shown below.  The first thing I thought of was a picnic when I saw the traditional red and white picnic blanket (although I think that's actually a cloth lined tray).  The second thing I thought of was this week's host for this theme, Sandy Palmer.  She lives many states away from me but she's been a really great friend and an awesome Design Team... teammate!  We talk often and I wish she lived closer so we could craft together.  So... needless to say, the sentiment I used was because I was thinking of her and the simple card... tattered in some edges were inspired by the picnic theme (well, at least I think of tattered things when it comes to picnics).

Ok, now it's your turn!  Come join us at My Sheri Crafts and share what you come up with using the image above
  • Card size - 5.25" x 4.25" 
  • Papers - JoAnn's
  • Sentiment is a stamp
Inspired by sketch 3 of RAQ's 7-4 Card Sketch Challenge hosted by AcrossThePond
