Authentique May Sketch Challenge

A quick card for Authentique's May sketch challenge. I'm using their new Delightful collection.

This is the sketch, and you'll see that I've made a few adjustments, tilting the mat for the center panel.

For the main panel, instead of creating four individual squares, I used a technique I saw here that I've been wanting to try, but on a larger scale.

In a nutshell, you score a grid on the cardstock and distress the paper a bit with ink, then stamp on top of it. I used a stamp from the Togetherness set which is actually stamped in second generation with Tulip ink.

The trims are from Hydrangea Hippo (elastic lace) and also from a bulk ribbon buy I made from Express the Moment.

Thanks for coming by!

Paper/Cardstock: Authentique - Delightful papers; CTMH - White Daisy bulk card
Stamps: Togetherness, Say it In Style
