More Crafty Secrets Fun


                                                                                                           
I made this card for the Crafty Secrets Challenge I am co hosting on Paper Craft Planet.  It is a 2 week challenge, it runs through to June 26th, I would love for you to come join the fun there with us.  All you need for this challenge is a Crafty Secrets item and lace.   I did have a little help in making this card.  I used the sketch from Mojo Monday, the color palette from Play Date Cafe and the inspiration to fray my Crafty Secrets Cotton Scraps, from Mona at Cupcake's Creations.  Mona has a fun tutorial on her blog showing how to print on fabric, check it out.  The beautiful background stamp I used on the Kraft cs is a digital called School Papers from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and the 40% off sale runs through midnight tonight.  It's on sale for just $2.39, can you believe that?  It's a steal!   Even if you don't do digitals this is a must have, you just print it on to any colored cs in Word.  I stamped the aqua cs with Stampin Up Elements of Style, I made the flower with crepe paper and Spellbinders Blossom 2, I trimmed my lace down a bit to fit and the metal charms had 4 ends which I used wire cutters to cut down to 2 to give it the visual effect I needed for the sketch.  I enjoyed making this, thanks for looking.  ~Diane
