School Days.

'Vintage School Days', is our new   Challenge theme  for this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
Remember we like to see your entries in a Vintage/Shabby Chic style.

I have been enjoying making cards using Graphics45 papers recently.  This card is another where I didn't reach out for the Stamps. It was asking too much not to use distress inks, so the extra shading is once again Tea dye.  All the papers  and image came from the ABC Primer pad., with lace etc. from my stash.

I will also  be entering this card into -
Out of a Hat Creations -Favourite technique or Product.
I am hooked on Graphics 45 papers as they suit the vintage/aged/collage styles that I love to make

Challenge 70 Back to School at Fussy and Fancy
Simon Says Stamp- Anything Goes
