Everything Matters

The sketch this week from Skipping Stones:
The inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room.  As soon as I saw it, I had to go create something, so inspiring!


For my card I used a few Unity Store Kits along with some Basic Grey and of course some Kraft.

I love the understated colour scheme you have used.

The whole thing reminds me of going off on biology field trips.

It definitely has a real feel of the natural and wanting to be close to nature!
