CSSC Timeless

This is my final card as Guest Designer for Cowgirl's Sunday Stampen' Challenge.  I have really enjoyed working with CJ's images, I will definitely be using them again!

I could not resist this one - it is called Dad'n Me.  I coloured it using my SU Chalks and a Blender Pen,  I have sponged around the edges, to give it a more aged look - and you know I love that!

The i age has been framed using a Cuttlebug Die - I have used the one Die which is about 1x2 inches and but it in half, adding these to the top and botton of the image. The side pieces are from the inside of the Die, you know the bits you normally throw out - as are the little corner pieces.  I really like the look of this - a bit like a Nestie!  I would dearly love to have more Nestibilities, my supplies are limited, but I also love the challenge of making something work - I tend to think it makes us more creative when we don't have everything at our fingertips.

I used the Ribbon Tags Nestibilitie, sponging the edges and adding a sentiment from Cristina Re.  The  buckle effect is done with the last 'leftovers' fron the Die, then ribbon is threaded through and brads are added - these are probaby what is keeping it al together - LOL! Oh I forgot to say that the DP has been embossed with the Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder.
