The Craft's Meow - Friend of Mine

I am honoured to be a Guest Designer for my SSIC Design Team Sister Lisa, who has opened her own store -  The Crafts Meow and am looking forward to using some of the New Release Sets illustrated by Nina Brackett for The Crafts Meow....

In the meantime, I wanted to share this card I created using the adorable little set Friend of Mine

I love the fonts and have stamped both the sentiment and the gorgeous butterfly with Tsukineko Versafine - fabulous ink to stamp with!

 I have added some stencilling using the Layers of Color Belle Brocade art stencil and topped it with some cream Seam Binding - don't you just love that stuff!?!?

The tags have been sitting in a box of sentiments and images I have stamped off well over a year ago (yes I know - terrible! LOL) I have punched them with an EK Ticketed Punch and added some paper piercing.  This card is very eclectic and a lot of white for me, but I am enjoying the shabby/vintage feel of it!!

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Tellen's Place - Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy - Something New (Stamps) and /or favourite embellishment (pearls)
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes - Optional - Kraft
