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
