You're a Classic

Hello on this very wet and dull Monday morning.  Can't you tell it's another Bank Holiday?!  I hope it doesn't spoil it for all of you.

Today's card has been made useing some digi's from a new designer 'squidgi digi' by Bethany Coe.  She has some fantastic images so pop on over and take a look.

I have just used plainn brown card for the backing on this, rounded the corners, distressed with ink and added a brad to each corner.  I have wrapped brown cross stitch thread around the backing and then distressed and attatched some brown corrugated card which has been wripped into a rough shape.

The image has been cut out with the largest nesties scalloped lace square die which has been ink distressed with brown and black ink.  It has then been coloured with pro markers.  I have printed a second image and cut it out , coloured it and decoupaged it on top.

The sentiment is another of squidgi's digi's!  that comes with a set, I have again distressed it and attathced with foam pads.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by.

Please leave a comment, I love to read them.
