Antique Sunshine and Apples

I simply adore Belles n Whistles Stamps and have so many of them on my birthday wish list lol! This image was a rak of Jayne again and coloured in distressed inks. The papers are a loose 12x12 I had a scrap of on my desk and the brown I think is part of a MME pack which was a loose sheet too. I have distressed the paper slightly by using just ink and not torn for once and the papers have been handsewn in brown thread. I have also stamped a bronze swirl onto the paper that you can just see in the photo but in the light it glistens lovely. The flowers have not been splitzed for once as I wanted an antique feel to the card and leaves didn't work. I added a ribbon instead of the sentiment in the sketch as I could not decide which sentiment fitted the card from my stash. I hope you like it.

challenge - spoonful of sugar

Please note I have added another item to my candy!
