I Spy Sketch 41-- Lean On Me!!

It's Friday morn' and time for another I Spy sketch!! Y'all created fabulous cards last week.... keep 'em coming!! This is the sketch challenge where we look for YOUR cards for Inspiration!!

So... last week the weaving was fun!! This week we have "rays" of a sort for you!!
ISSC41 is by Chris Franco (allamericanstampers at SCS) and is inspired by this card.  Fun!!

I used a tutorial from Shannon Tuebner which you can find here. Actually should have carried out the strips all the way to the right... another day! Papers are Authentique Glory, SU Night of Navy- Riding Hood Red- and Cherry Cobbler... fun colors!! Border die is MFT. Flower outline was stamped in corresponding colors and die cut with Verve's Pointed Flowers. The grid pattern is from Verve's Making A Statement and sentiment overstamped.  Flower outline and sentiment from Verve's Lean On Me. Added some big halfback pearls and cream seam binding bow.

The sketch...

You could use the tutorial link I provided but... I also see rays from an embossing folder or masking or a stamp.... so many fabulous possibilities!!

So.....have fun and get to Stampin!! Make a card using the sketch - and link it up.... we'd LOVE to see what you create!! Make sure and stop by the blog to see what the other Special Agents created-serious creativity and inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

So pretty Vickie! Love the rays you've created! Reminds me of a homespun quilt. Has such a country charm!
