The Sugar Bowl........................


Hello,

Great to be at the weekend! My card today is for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl and the criteria is to use three papers, and three elements. My papers are from Dianes Daughters and my three elements are silver heart, flower and ribbon. I have coloured my image with distress inks. For the background I have used milled lavender, dusty concord and vintage photo. I have added some brilliance white to the edges of my papers.

Thank you so much for looking.

Have a fabulous weekend!

love
