twisted Venti♥

I can't believe that this is sketch #47 from twisted sketches......8-)
this weeks twist is "clean", since I tend to do a lot of inking, distressing and layering I decided to use the word clean to describe my style with this LO...clean and simple!
all of the papers are from the "Nook and Pantry" range from Basic Grey.
head over to twisted sketches and check out how the rest of the DT used "clean" this week and pic up your copy of the sketch to play along

I also wanted to share this card with you, just a quick and simple card with some "vintage" Sassafras Lass ♥
