Belles and Whistles DT card......

Good Morning!
Today is my day to post over at the
Belles and Whistles blog.
I thought I had better get this image colored
as Fall will be here before we know it!!
We are holding onto our last days of Summer I think and the
girls are going back to school Monday!!
(It just went by so fast!!!)
Anyways this is A Merry Go from the
Forever Young collection!
(I just love the name...)


I wanted to use shabby papers and colors but also
wanted to use my star so I combined the
vintagey with the shabby!! (My favorite look!)

The papers are a mix of Pink Paislee, Basic Grey,
Graphic 45 and MME.  I added some distress crackle paint
 to the edges, Picket Fence, and also added crackle accents
to my horse. I wanted some more distressed
elements to match my rustic star. The flowers
have glitter on them and I added some stickles
to the pole and blanket.
I have colored with distress inks.
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

The sketch is from Sketchy Colors and I have
made a girly card for the challenge over

Well that is it!! I hope you all have
a fabulous day today! We are going to
be only in the high 60's today so I know
it is going to feel chilly!! I won't complain as
I am a fall girl anyways!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

:)Kathy

Hi Kathy. Your card is fabulous! Love your colouring of this very sweet image and you're right to squeeze it in before the fall weather starts. Our summer is starting to cool off here in SW Ontario as evidenced by all the rain we've been getting. Hugs, Maria
