{MTSC72} Friend to Friend

When I first saw Mercy's Sketch this week I *gasped*!  Look at that beautiful swirl design!  I know they sell the perfect embellishments for this type of design, but I don't happen to have any. : (  Sooo, I did the next best thing and went to my stash of designer paper instead. 

It is going to be so fun to see how everyone else interprets this sketch!
Can I talk you into playing along???
See details below...

The flowers are from the Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue set and the "friend to friend" sentiment is from Pocket Silhouettes.  You can see how I finished the inside in the photo below...

You are ALL encouraged to play along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  Simply create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and link your creation on Mercy's blog. Be sure to use the keyword MTSC72 when uploading to a public gallery, like Splitcoaststampers.

"Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away. "  ~Dinah Craik
