So Worth the Wait

Sometimes it is good to 'change the pace' a bit with out creating - shabby vintage is my 'signature' style, but I am really enjoying moving out of the 'comfort zone' every now and then - and this is one of those times...

The cardstock for the image and sentiment has been cut/embossed using A2 Distressed Edges  Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator and the Spellbinder Grand Calibur.  I have used IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Peanut Brittle and Toffee Crunch  for the script and sponging.

The 'rings' have been created using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Espresso Truffle and the sentiment stamped using Tuxedo Black.

This card is linked to the following challenges: 
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes / No Designer Papers
