Cotton Tails

DSCF7500

I have been working on this card for three days---it finally came together today! My niece had her little boy on Thursday, so this will go to the happy new family! It fulfills a sketch and two challenges:

There is not much stamping going on here, just lots of texture and layers. I love the shabby look, I just have so much trouble doing it! The image is from a page of Melissa Frances scrapbook embellishments I have hoarded for a couple years…..now is the time to break into them!! I used several PTI sentiments, stamped them on some tiny tags and distressed them and hung them from my taffeta ribbon:

Isn’t this little picture just the cutest?

And the inside uses a sweet little retired SU set:

Now, off to clean my messy stamp room! Contact me if you have questions!
