This is the great sketch we have for you this week.

This is a very different style for me this week. Obviously it isn't square for a start! I love the shabby style I see on other card makers blogs and so I thought I'd give it a go from some great inspirations I found around. I did some distressing, pleating, trim and lace and I was really happy with the results.
I hope you like it as much as I do:)
