My Besties Making Faces Grandmother's Day or Birthday card for Grandma!

Sheri Baldy just recently designed this awesome My Besties Making Faces image #324 found here and i knew i wanted to make a card instantly with this image..i just needed to take time away from my other DT commitments to do this card...

I knew i wanted to play along with some other challenges before i made this card, so that was my starting point..to find a sketch that would work with the image and then some theme challenges to go with it.. and this is what i came up with base on that criteria:
I have also used a sentiment from Raisin Boat Stamp called Grandma's Kitchen and a couple dies.  The card base and first layer and the sentiment die are from Marianne Designs.  The die behind the image is a Tattered Lace circle.



I have also used some lavender tulle on her hat for her veil. This is how i do it..i make a slit with my art craft knife and slip a gathered piece of tulle in the slit and tape it on the back to stay secure.
