TSG171 - Feeling Crabby?

Hi everyone! It's my turn to come up with the weekly challenge over at the TSG blog so I have come up with a sketch for you all. I know, you are completely shocked by my choosing a sketch but try to play along anyway :D

Because my Beach Bum hermit crab scenery image turned out to be a little larger than I expected, I turned the sketch on it's side and fudged it a little ;) I kept the papers relatively simple by choosing some of the more muted sheets from the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Rosy line. because I wanted the image to really stand out :)

I ended up getting a little bit creative with my seam binding, twine and button combo, just to add a little bit of interest without making the card too busy. I added some additional sponging to the edges of the papers with some Ranger Distress Antique Linen and Ranger Distress Vintage Photo inks as well :)

If you would like to play along with the Trendsetters in this sketch challenge then don't forget to drop by the TSG blog to link up your card :) I hope that you like my card today and stay tuned for a very special post on Wednesday - you won't be disappointed as I have a wee bit of a surprise for you :D
