Granny's apron

Hey all,
I still don't have a camera cord. I have contacted Fuji and the are out of stock right now. I hope I can get one soon... Here is a card for a few challenges.
I used this Challenge for most of the inspiration!
I had a vision of a granny's apron. I used gingham paper to fold a fan and trimmed it with lace, pearls and twill ribbon. I didn't tie a bow because I thought this knot would suit a granny making jam much better. All perfect elements of a souther granny. I also used the sentiment from a PCD stamp set. I thought it was the perfect quote for a souther granny to say: You're Dandy.

I flipped the sketch at Laura's Sketch 50 
Monochromatic card, I used Core'dinations paper and sanded it for a weathered look.
And last but by far not least!
Piled it on with Challenge #15 "Spring"
Happy Krafting, Shaz
p.s. I {heart} comments!
