Sugar Bowl Challenge

Sorry ladies for not posting as often as most of you, I just don't know how you all craft so much and have the time to blog hop. I seem to spend most of my time blog hopping these days. I just received my new cd of Debbi Moore designs - Shabby Chic, so I thought I would print off some papers and make a card. I used the lovely Sassy stamp Vintage Boutique for this one which you can get from Funky Kits.
  • Debbi Moore papers. I tried to distress the edges with a knife but you cannot really see from the photo. Must invest in a Tim Holtz tool. Added to my list.
  • Lace from stash
  • Promarkers used: sunkissed pink, blush, Ivory and pastel pink for cheeks
  • cocoa, cinnamon, tan, pastel yellow, buttercup, peach, oatmeal and sandstone
  • chalked around the stamped image. Tried using distress ink, but did not have any foam so tried using make up sponges, but did not really get the desired effect, so went back to my good old chalkes.
  • Swirly stamp on corners of image.
  • Spacer metal buttons
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Challenge 64 - Kiki's Sketch - The Sugar Bowl Challenge 
Anything goes - Papertake Weekly Challenge
