Distressed Willow times 2......

Over at StampARTic Katharina has posted a beautiful sketch and it grabbed me so I had to try it out! I distressed all the edges with vintage photo.
The paper is from K & Co. and the flowers are from the retro punch and eBay. This was definitely a fab sketch to work with and I can see using it again!! Thanks for the challenge.


And in case your not allowed to combine challenges over at StampARTic I have made another card for the "Distressed" challenge over at Whiff of Joy.
This time instead of using inks to distress I used my scissors instead. I just adore this image and had to use her again. She is adorable and perfect for any card!! I needed another b-day card for Kelsey's classmate so guess who came to mind?? (LOL)
I had alot of scraps of these papers so that is how the layout came about. Still not really sure about it but anyways....

Paper: MME
Inks: Distress Inks, Twinkling H2o's
Accessories: buttons, twine from stash. Sentiment stamp ~ Stampology

I just have to add that the button is in the center but I took the picture at a different angle and it looks off centered! (LOL)

I also just want to say thanks to Ceal for putting me on the Inspirational blog! I was so touched that someone thought of me!! Thanks again.

Also thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such sweet comments they really mean alot to me!! Have a great day!!
