(Please scroll down for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday DT post)
Over at A Spoonful of Sugar today we are challenging you to use a vintage or shabby chic theme! This isn't really my comfort zone - it (ahem) "distresses" me not to have my clean, neat lines! But I've had to make a few of these styles recently and I think I'm getting the hang of them! What do you think...?
My Tim Holtz distressing tool is starting to get really blunt now and I handstitched all that - patience of an angel, don't you think?!! This card also gave me an excellent excuse to use up some very, very old stash that's been lying around for years - it was very satisfying! I did use something new too though - see that lovely organic thick twine? I bought it from my blog friend Carly's Etsy shop called Perfectly Pretty. She has some lovely, lovely stash perfect for this style! And those crochet flowers are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here.
That's it from me today! You can see all the other gorgeous DT makes here.
I am entering my card into the BasicGrey challenge theme of wings and By the Cute and Girly theme of springtime.
