Our wonderful sponsor for this week is....
My DT card this week uses one of our sponsors images called Little Bear Spring Bonnet and it is just too cute for words - take a look please:
I haven't made a shabby chic/vintage style card in a while so I thought it would be fun to do so with this image. I paper pieced her dress and hat. Important lesson to remember when you are coloring with alcohol markers - color first then paper piece. The DP I used is much more porous than the cardstock and I got a few areas of bleed over ink that I wasn't expecting. Mistakes are sometimes part of the crafty process - right? So I thought I'd pass that little tidbit of info on to you (I'll bet most of you knew that already didn't ya?). The finished card is 5 1/2" square and will still fit nicely into a 6" envelope even with the lace peeping over the edge. I had a lot of fun with the distressing process on this card - I think that's why I like this style.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today, I hope you enjoyed this card! I'd encourage you to pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT ladies have made for your inspiration (just click here to get there). While you're at it, leave them a little love too - we LOVE to hear from you. :o) Hope you will decide to play along this week with us - remember Anything Goes!
