Skipping Stones ~ Rustic Tiles Blog Hop & Sketch 102

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge # 102 and Rustic Tiles blog hop!
I am really enjoying playing along with the wonderful Skipping Stones team :)

Rustic Tiles is a versatile set, that you are about to see from the fabulous Design Team. 
If you just came from KAREN'S blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.  The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.

Now here is my card I made with Rustic Tiles....very loosely following the sketch.
You know how you start with a sketch and an idea in mind and then you start to make the card and then you go and make dinner and then you come back and do a little more and then you go and watch Dexter....and come back again???
No?
well the above card is what happens!
:)
Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all of the blogs.
Head over to Stephanie's blog for some more Skipping StonesDesign inspiration!

Have a FABULOUS day!
