Aged to Perfection

Hi!  I thought I would post my Designed2Delight card I recently made.  It was posted last week on the D2D blog while I was at the beach.

Posting it here, allbeit late, let's me give you more details.  If I can remember them.

I combined 2 images of D2D, 'Happy Rabbit' & 'Doodle Cake'.  Used my Distress inks to color the image.  Actually used my deckle scissors to cut the image out!  How old school can you get?

I had picked out some papers from my new paper pad by Fancy Pants - Its the little things collection.  I thought a vintage feel went well with these papers, so I sponged Distress inks on all the edges of the papers.

You know, D2D is having a challenge right now right here called 'European Inspired'.  You can use any image you wish and make anything with a European flair to it.  I think this card would qualify, don't you?  [Hurry, you only have until Saturday 1a.m. EST. Also the free image challenge is going on here until Thursday 11:59p.m. EST.]

When I crocheted that flower, I was just starting to try to crochet flowers for my cards.  I quickly learned that yarn makes a BIG flower!  Didn't think this flower would ever be used, but I managed to squeeze it on there.

The little line of beads is from a spool of trim I bought to use on cards.  Turns out it is very difficult to glue on!  Not recommending this for anyone.

Also NOT recommending the Cloud 9 stamps I used on this card.  It was a nice big set of various birthday quotes that certainly would be useful.  Well, I have noticed that the line spacing is not parallel.   And not just on one stamp!  Don't get these!!!!

Okay, that's my good deed for the day.  Have a great crafting day!
