Divas By Design Challenge "Distressing"

Welcome to my blog today!!

Divas By Design has a new challenge this week

We are using Lili Of The Valley Stamps this time!
Here is my LOTV image Mirror, Mirror

I must be on a purple binge lately as quite a few of the cards I have made are purple.  I love the Pion papers and the aged rose frantage together on my card.  I used a bit of Stampendous lavender crushed glitter glass too.

My image is colored in Distressed Inks and sewn onto Pion paper.  All of the card layers are distressed around the edges.  I used Heidi Swapp edge distresser tool and then aged the edges with tea dye and dusty concord distressed ink.

Along the bottom there are WOC florals, a mini Magnolia tag with a word sticker, and a frantaged and glittered wooden house.

In this photo you can see the Websters Pages ribbon better, one of my favorites that I covet and never use. lol  I have alot of embellishments that I admire but do not use on creations, I need to stop that!!

Frantage is on the wire heart hanger, around the sentiment and on the edges.  You can see a bit of the glitter on the double butterfly and more WP ribbon.

The inside is peaking out

Please go to the Divas By Design Challenge blog and check out some of the other DT ladies creations and then enter to win!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
