Is it really Friday Again?

Oh my how time flies! Today is my last card linked to the Challenge theme over on the Penny Black Blog of Distressed .

The background to this card was created by stamping letter background with antique linen distress ink onto Kraft card. The edges were then distressed with antique linen and vintage photo ink.

A smaller piece of card was cut from Clear Skies Mix & Match card stock 10-002 available here and the edges stamped with a part of the Bouquet in the To You Clear set 30-067 available here, using Versamark ink and then embossed with detail white powder. The edges were then distressed with Tonic distress tool and inked with distress ink.

The Wish Big 3661C sentiment was stamped into the centre of the card using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and the ribbon, twine and button added. This was then mounted onto the main card blank, a butterfly was punched out using Martha Stewart butterfly punch and stamped with letter background using antique linen ink. This was then adhered to the card with dimensional glue and gems added to the body and the centres of some of the flowers.

Thanks for joining me this week and for all your wonderful comments, they really do make my day!
Have a great weekend.
