I've never even thought about doing this style of card, let alone be comfortable with the style. But isn't crafting about trying new things, expanding techniques, taking yourself out of the comfort zone? Well that's what I hope I have achieved here.
This card was sparked off by the challenge this week for shabby chic over on Ellephantastic Challenges, owned and run by a dear friend, Helen who has set up her own shop selling her digis and other crafting goodies. Yet another friend... yes, I have more than 1... Karen over at The Duck Pond is putting together and selling these amazing card making kits with some fantastic papers etc. When you have a spare 5 mins - go take a look at both.
Using 2 of the papers, dewdrops and buttons from the Duck's kit and a freebie image from Dezina World, and a couple of other bits from stash, I put this little card together. The layers are stitched together.
I am also entering this into the City Crafter Challenge for their "Isn't She Lovely" challenge.
I don't think this will be a style I do a lot of.... but will always try something at least once.
