Colonel Mustard...In the Conservatory...

...with the lead pipe - LOL!! I used to LOVE to play the game "Clue" when I was growing up - I was such a sucker for mystery stories - anywho - why am I talking about the game "Clue'? Hee hee...this maid set combined with this paper reminds me of that board game - I've been wanting to do a card that had sort of a vintage feeling to it with this set and I finally found that perfect paper to pair up with it!! I really wanted to showcase this gorgeous paper - it's from a paper stack by a company called Stemma - it was given to me by a uber-sweet co-worker of my hubby's - she had a few stacks of this paper and thought she would see if I would like to have it before she threw it out (all the gals at my DH's work know that I love papercrafting) - so anyway - when he brought the paper home - I absolutely fell in love with it - they really are gorgeous stacks - so thank you SO much, Dina!!! ;) So I knew I wanted to use this stamp with these papers and when I saw Frances' MFT sketch for today - well - it just all fell into place!! You can view Frances' fabulous sketch here - I hope you'll pop on over and play - remember each week - one sketch challenge participant is chosen to receive a $5 gift certificate to the MFT store - and really - who couldn't use more MFT stamps??? Hee hee...thanks so much for stopping by!!!
