Mojo Monday Challenge No. 294

Julee Tilman designed this sketch for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge No. 294. Below is my take on the sketch. I really am drawn to a French Country, Shabby Chic feel, and I tried to capture it here with this card, using neutral tones and natural cotton ribbon.

I’d love to see your take on Julee’s design.

Happy Crafting!
