Together forever


While trying to tidy my craft desk and find a little order in all the chaos I seem to work in, I came across an image of another  favourite stamp from  Paperbag studio. So rather than store it in  my bits and pieces box, I set to and made this card.
The paper  layers  are Prima I think, and  I used vintage photo  distress ink for shading.  The image fitted easily into a Spellbinder die shape and  the swirls were cut from a sissix die. Lace and buttons from my sewing stash to finish it off.
I did manage to  create some order, but came to my usual conclusion, that as long as there is a small space to put the craft mat the rest will find  its own level. Anyway every time I have a tidying session I can never find a thing for days afterwards.
  Challenges  that this card  fits the theme are,
Tic, Tac, Toe over at Sugar Creek Hollow a beautiful challenge blog I found recently.
the Tic, tac, toe line  is the horizontal one where  you have to show-Lace -Buttons -Die cuts.

Also at  Just for Fun   its   'Anything Goes'  this week , so these two treasures will be making an appearance over there as well.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you calling
