Fairy tales do come true

Well, none of mine have today! Alas, it's just the title of my next card that Totally Tilda's challenge inspired - to use lilac and lace. I'm not really a shabby chic / distress / vintage type of gal but I thought I should use up some core-dination cardstock and pins that have been in my stash for aaaages! I am also submitting it into this month's Sir Stampalot's challenge "all distressed".


Wow, I'm really on a roll this week with creating cards! At least one card a day - what a record! Now, just need some more reasons to send these cards to people...


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock
Stamps: Magnolia Ballerina Tilda, Elzybells sentiment
Mediums: Copic markers
Accents: DecoArt Just Glitter pen in gold, lace (from Bunny Zoe's Crafters here), sheer lace, buttons and pins from stash, Bazzill white floss
Tools: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestabilities label dies, Fiskars border punch

Oh, Mary, you did "distressed" perfectly. Your card is gorgeous. The lace bow and stick pin are perfect embellishments. You've really been cranking out the cards, haven't you? If you need someone to send cards to, I can send you my mailing address lol!

Lol @ Anita! I agree though you do distressed very well! I had to do an Autumnal/distressed/vintage type feature for a magazine due out soon, I was a bit worried as I'd not done much of it myself but I think once you get going it's quite easy and I love the core-dination CS, the white wash pack is so nice. A gorgeous card!
Thank you for telling me which ribbon it was, I thought I recognised it and remember it now. Oh and for the stamp advice, I think I'm going to have to do another Elzybells order before they shut :)
