{MTSC69} The Road Less Traveled

Today's card was created especially for
With the help of Mercy's super sketch,
 my card came together in minutes!

First, I selected this designer paper by Basic Grey.  It's appropriately named Sun Dress from the Lemonade series.  The base cardstock and the oval are barely banana cardstock by Stampin' Up! 

The stamped quote by Robert Frost is from a Verve set that I won last year. I've stamped it with Bermuda Bay on naturals ivory and sponged the edges with Versafine vintage sepia.
