Craft Your Days Away DT card

We've got a fab new sponsor for our new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away and our challenge for the next fortnight is a great one too - DISTRESSING.

Our new sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 7 digis from their shop.

I've used their image called Silhouette Butterfly Flowers which I printed onto patterned paper and ditressed the edges.  The frame is a Spellbinders die which I sanded down around the edges.  I've used some faux suede flowers, a little wooden button and a ribbon and bow salvaged from a Christmas card.  The dark brown dots are card candi which just added a bit of detail in the corners.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - You can choose
Crafty Catz - Buttons and Bows
Crop Stop - Distressed or Vintage
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything Goes
Delightful Challenges - Distressed/Vintage
Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and join in with us,
