Elphine House DT card.......

© Elisabeth Bell

Good Evening!!
I am so excited to be showcasing my first
Elphine House DT card!  I get the pleasure of
showing Flowers for You.  Isn't she just adorable!
AND you can use her for just about anything!

I have decided to make a tote for some seed packets.  I used a kraft
bag and printed off a seed print I got from here. I thought
it worked perfect and it printed like a dream!! That will be the
little bag to place the packs of seeds.  The sentiment is another
 that I printed off the computer! It is on kraft and it had
some discoloration on it ~ fits my shabby style nicely!

Here is a close-up of my adorable image! She was colored with
distress inks and twinkling h2o's.  I also added some dots with
my white gel pen!

Here is the packet and tag.  Everything was covered with
Tim Holtz crackle distress paint in Picket Fence.

I just used a sentiment from CHF for the back. I can't leave a
link as they don't sell them anymore!!

Paper ~ Fancy Pants, Kraft ~ Hobby Lobby
Inks ~ distress inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories ~ Ribbon ~ Dollar Store, buttons ~ PTI
Crinkled ribbon and flowers ~ Wild Orchid Crafts

These images are all available now at Elphine House.
You can also see the rest of the DT cards there as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all
have a fabulous week-end!!!
