Not too distressed

Hi all,

Well, the girls had a lovely last day in kindy. Daisy made cards for her teachers. In the rush I forgot to take photos of them, but they loved them. Daisy and Martha both came home with big cards with photos of their friends on. I think we will have to frame them when we get back to England.

It's time for another Creative Craft challenge. Our theme is distressed/vintage. I don't usually do vintage as I find it difficult, but I thought I would have a bit of both themes in my card. I distressed the edges of the card and paper and used a doily. I have seen them on many wonderful cards and thought I would try. Check out the creations from the rest of the fab DT.

It's beautiful Nikki love the image she is so dainty I have found a place that does the tiny doiley's and they are quite cheap to so when you get back over here I will give the address (website)if you like you get 20 for £1 which I thought was a good buy and they are good quality too anyway back to your card love the destressed look you have given it you haven't gone overboard like I sometimes do so it's subtle but enough for the image love it all
