Hi everyone, how's your weekend been? did you get caught with any April Fools? It's been a lovely bright day today, but a bit on the chilly side.
I've had a lucky couple of weeks for a change, what with my candy win I told you about and a couple of challenge wins. I was in the top 3 at "Card Crafter's Circle" and I chose this gorgeous Antique Bicycle Digi Milk Coffee Stamps isn't it cute, makes me want to eat chocolate flake lol!
I thought I'd make a vintage, country style looking card, I am really pleased with how it came out. I went a bit mad with my inky stitching and was a bit like a wild woman zig zagging without much care but I ended up with exactly the look I was after and even decorated the inside straight away in a similar style. Sadly I have now used most of my lovely This&That papers by Echo Park I was able to place my square nestability between previous cuts to form my patchwork squares. inking the edges with T.H. distress inks to add to the vintage feel. A length of my candy win lace and a recycled blouse button and my cards complete,except for the sentiment and stamped butterfly.
I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
Stampalot April, Birthday,
Speedy Fox 101, Square,
SCH5, Vintage,shabby chic Birthday,
Cardmadfairys 30, Die cuts,
Truly Scrumptious 77,Use lace.
Thanks for stopping by, have a good week,
