ABC Design Team Card Y is for You and Me


The jury is still out on this one. My husbands parents have been married 45 years this september,(I am trying to get ahead on cards) and I wanted a card that resembles a picture that has gone brown with age iykwim. I therefore used distressed inks in various shades of brown (lots of mixing) to paint the scene. The papers are Basic Grey Cappella such an adorable pad. I have added stitching to the paper edges and slightly distressed then and then inked them in bronze. The flowers are Wild Orchard Crafts whom are sponsoring the challenge and they have had gold stickles added to them. I hope that you will be able to join us.

Challenges (All linked on sidebar as per usual)
  • Allsorts - Crate a Scene
  • Sketch Saturday - Sketch
  • Totally Tilda - Chocolate and cream
  • Papertake Weekly - In stitches
