Sugar, Sugar.... February Project!

Our February project was to make a tag card devised by the talented Tiets! It turns out gorgeous and if you follow the link you will find the instructions for creating the card.I have used Pickin' Apples from the Elisabeth Bell line. I just love this image and haven't inked it up in awhile. That is what I love about these challenges ~ I keep seeing some oldies but goodies!! (LOL) I have distressed all the edges and used some nestabilities to create my flap.

Paper: MME
Inks: distressed inks and twinkling h2o's
Accessories: Ribbon, button, twine are all just left overs from stash

Here is the inside of my card:

Well thanks for stopping by and don't forget to look at the rest of the DT creations!! There is quite a beautiful variety!! Also why not give it a try you have all month long!!! AND BTW the prize for the Sugar Bowl challenge is either the 6 released Leanne Ellis stamps OR you can pick a new set of 6 that has yet to be released!!! Awesome right!!!!
Have a great day!!

i love all your cards!!!! I would love to know how you color with the distress inks. do you use the stamp pads and a watercolor paint brush? I tried that and couldn't get much color..... your work is amazing.
