CR84FN24 & SSD#72 Challenges

Monday, April 18, 2011

Happy Monday to you! I have a pretty card to show you today! I decided to combine two challenges:

and

I love the soft colors and I thought the sketch was great!


I may be biased, but I absolutely love this! I've seen so many vintage and shabby styles on so many blogs, and have really admired them. Been wanting to try it, but for awhile didn't have the tools or supplies to create something! So...does this count as shabby or vintage?! I really need your opinion since I'm so new to this! I would LOVE to hear feedback...whether it's positive OR constructive criticism...I can take it, LOL! :)
The three pieces of patterned paper, the card base, and the butterfly were inked and then distressed (except the base & butterfly) with the distressing tool. The sage frame is a Nestabilities die. I placed two dies close in size in the machine at the same time, then embossed it to create the frame! The little Enjoy sentiment and the tag are both PTI Tiny Tags. Finished it with some lace and twine!
