Starring Inky Fingers

Hi all, just showing you a quick card for an older teenager.
Rather a lot of inky distressing was involved along with some embossing, some staples and some brads.
 
 


A die cut star, folded into shape and inked, a lot of paper piercing with the old pattern making tool, some tape and some string saved from some new clothing tags and the card is completed.
 
 

 
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
 Alphabet Challenge, R,recycle,
Craftymess 19, Anything goes,
Crafts And Me 105, Anything goes,
SOS72, Top line Tic,tac,toe,
CMC5, Anything goes,
MIM110, Anything goes,
MIMWKO, Reuse,recycle.
 
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
