An Antique Card


Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the theme this week is ANTIQUE ... Not an easy one for me, in fact I only did another one of these cards before, but then, when I finish them, I always love the end result :)  So why I don't do these type of cards more often, I really don't know!!! 

For my card today I decided to use this sweet Teddy With Rose stamp which I coloured with my promarkers and one of the lovely new Valentine Sentiments from Crafty Sentiments


Instead of my usual stitching, today I tried some distressing around the edges of the paper and the stamp. The paper is from a Papermania pack, flower punch is Martha Stewart and for the scrolls I used my Tim Holtz On The Edge die.


I would like to enter my card in these challenges today.

The Stamp Man 14 - DISTRESS
Passion for ProMarkers 83 - ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE
Tuesday Throwdown 32 - VALENTINE
Stamp Something - ANYTHING
Totally Gorjuss 63 - CUDDLY
Pile It On 3 - ANYTHING GOES

Thanks for looking today. Hope to see you come playing along with us this week.

Hugs
