A Distressing Spoon Full of Sugar!

Today is A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge and the challenge is to distress! And I just got my Stampavie Sarah Kay Noels stamps - so perfect timing!

This image is Noel Charity - isn't she wonderful. I just love all of these new images.

For my card - I started with a dark green card stock, then layered with a piece of Core'dinations Vintage card stock that I sanded. On that I put a piece of red card stock that I sanded, then I found this wonderful piece of Victorian Christmas paper, I forgot by who.. and I did it again, I stuck down.... I then sewed them all down with Metallic thread.

The ribbon was also in my scraps, seemed perfect with the paper and image. And I finally got to use some of the Christmas Primas! They are so pretty and have glitter on them. Three felt brads in the corner, and then I dug through my stamps and found the Limited Edition Christmas circles for the sentiment.

I hope you get to see all the DT cards at A Spoon Full of Sugar - wonderful cards as they always do!!! And again a great prize to win if you join in...

Well Hubby is needing me... and since it is my craft room he is working on, I try and drop and run when he does :0)

Hope you have wonderful Tuesday!
