Pink, Cream and Brown


First of all I want to say I hope all my American followers enjoyed their July 4th celebrations. I have seen some of your blogs and you looked as though you had fun!

Back to crafty business - I made this card using a Crafty Individuals stamp CI-148, so perfect for this month's Craft Individuals challenge which is to make a vintage card using the colours pink, cream and brown. Firstly I embossed a piece of card with swiss dots and aged it with distress inks. I stamped the focal image in brown and pink distress inks. The butterfly is an Anna Griffin stamp and the ticket is a download from Miss Cutie Pie.As a finishing touch I added a hatpin.
