My goodness, it's Thursday already! The days really are flying by! Almost time to go back to work :( Only today and tomorrow :( then it's back to a hard slog leading up to working Christmas Day, Boxing Day & the day after :(

Oh well, I thought I would share a card I made for my Uncle, it was his birthday last Sunday. My uncle likes walking and lives in Cumbria and I thought he would appreciate a Autumnal card of sorts!

I got into a lil distress mode but not too far out of my comfort zone!! I just dabbed various distress inks over the stamp & then spritzed with water before stamping onto so MM ledger paper. The ledger paper made the ink bleed slightly which gives a lovely effect I think!

A bit of linen thread & a vintage button finished the panel off that was matted to some Chocolate Chip CS and I adhered it to the card base using foam pads. I added a simple 'Happy Birthday' sentiment & ta-da!

CS: SU! Cream, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Hero Arts S5154 Three Ferns
Ink: various Ranger Distress Ink Pads, SU! Chocolate Chip
Accessories: MM Ledger DP, Linen Thread, Vintage Button, Foam Pads

I have a lot of college work to do today, so it's all go in the studio today! I hope to finish a Magnolia card today that I started yesterday so I will have another card share tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
