This week's challenge at Just A Scrappin' is to create a card, layout or project that celebrates your family using your favorite colors and embellishment(s), along with utilizing the distress technique. This challenge was a perfect way to celebrate my sister who is turning 35. My sister loves the vintage look of things and distressing is a great way to add an aged look and feel to any project.
To create this card, I used the Flea Market paper collection by Colorbok. In addition, I added machine stitching and seam binding from Verve Stamps, and then distressed the entire card to give it an aged feel. I then applied tea dye ink to the edges to further age the paper. The pop-up embellishment is from K&Company. Michael's craft store placed these embellishments on clearance and I scooped them ALL up (I love embellishment).
