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


Hi,

The next challenge over at The Sugar Bowl is Love and Romance. For my card I have coloured my image with distress inks. I have distressed the background with tattered rose, worn lipstick and dusty concord. The hearts and little flowers I have alcohol inked some acetate and cuttledbuged the hearts then swiss dotted them. The little flowers are a punch. The circle sentiment is from Aud and the word sentiment is from crafty individuals. I have itemised the products for this card in the labels below.

I would like to add how much your comments mean to me. A big thank you to you all for your lovely words I really treasure them.

love
