Vintagey Sarah Kay.....

My card today is for 2 challenges. Over at CCT they want you to use your punches and/or diecuts. I have used my nesties and a punch from Martha Stewart.
Then I seen a new one (for me anyways) called Simon Says Stamp. Well they want you to use products from the fabulous Tim Holtz! I love his products so I had to play along. I have used the distress inks for coloring (of course) and then some distress crackle paint for my heart diecut. I also used one of his charms ~ it is tough to see but it says forevermore on it! I thought that would be fitting since it is an anniversary card.
Not sure if you can see my flowers but they are so glittery!! I have used Kim's tip on using a shoebox to house my project to be sprayed with the glimmer mist and it really works fabulous!! I have never gotten such good results!! Thanks so much Kim!

Paper: K and Co.
Inks: Distressed inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: ribbon ~ Melissa Frances, Charm ~ Tim Holtz, flowers ~ Prima

Well thanks so much for stopping by! Hope everyone's weather is better than here. We have had solid rain for three days!! On the upside the grass looks beautiful!!
I hope you all have a great week-end!
