Creative Card Crew - fantasy

Happy Wednesday!

Well, we had some snow yesterday, about 3 inches and the temps never rose above freezing!  I guess winter want us to know he's still here!  

This card is another result of my printer software malfunction the other night!  I haven't tried editing anything else yet, the frustration is still too fresh!  lol

I used some scraps of ATD paper, MS border punch with vintage text, American Crafts rick rack, vintage seam binding and pink Bella em-Bella-shment.  I cut a 'primative' star shape from heavy cardstock and pierced/distressed it with Shimmerz paint. (letting it harden & cracking it)

Tonight brings a new challenge over at Creative Card Crew, Fantasy and we are sponsored by Gingerloft!

Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT and the prize info!  Creative Card Crew challenge blog!

Wow, Maria your card is absolutely stunning! Love all of the elements you put together, the seam binding looks awesome and the star and button too, it all fits so well together!! Love it!
I know what you mean about the to do list, it really never gets done! I think all we can do it prioritize and let the rest be.
