I made this card from the image supplied by Sandi Huggett on the CFC Challenge over at the Outlawz. Every two weeks you are given two digi's from the very talented Sandi Huggett and Anne Fenton, from which you need to make at least one card - with their work it's not hard!
When I saw this image it looked vintage to me and I wanted it to look old but soft.
I have a whole case of papers I got from Costco a couple of years back and I found the perfect papers for my background. I coloured the image with chalks, I've not used my chalks for ages, years in fact so I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I did manage to get the effect I wanted. The sentiment is made from a book die from Sizzix (yonks old!!) which I cut from some cream paper and chalked the edges to age it and found a peel off for the words, I've just rolled and taped it to make it look like a book. The little wooden embellishment I recently got from Cardcraft Plus. The braid is from Paper Mania, I think, and I have had it for ever, LOL!!
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!
