GDT -Tuesday Throwdown -vintage lace


Seeeeee, I can do non-CAS cards too!  haha

This is my Guest DT card for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge, they have the best themes, this week is lace!

I really had fun with this one!   Coloring is so therapeutic, especially flowers!   And distressing is so de-stressing...don't you agree?!

Stamps: Prairie Fairy digi (watering can)
sentiment: SU!
Papers: SU! kraft cs, MME dp
Ink: Copic/Prisma markers
Other: lace, twine, buttons,
Nesties, vintage seam binding.

I love this style of cardmaking as much as I love CAS!  Makes my face smile!

Pop over to the TT challenge blog and stare in awe at the gorgeous DT creations and read all about the wonderful prize offered this week from Prairie Fairy!
