TuesMorn Spoonfullofsugar CupCakeCrafts Diecutsrus





well this one i combined 4 different challenges.
1) being the awesome sketch by melissa over at TMS.
2) ASFOS this weeks theme is distressing.. i think that applies to every card i make ;)
3) CCC whos theme is a recipe: 3buttons, 2 papers and 1 ribbon ( i used lace)
4) DCRU whos challenge was to use the negative space from a diecut etc. i save most of my negative parts of paper especially hearts.. so this was a fun one for me as i love to use the negative cuts.
i used my cricut and accent essentials (heart cutout. the actual heart cuts are inside the card) and home decor (love) cartridges. i computer generated the other text, added some cute heart buttons and dabbed (alot!) with colorbox fluid chalk for the distressing/aged look. i also doodledotted with acrylic paint and my trusty lil toothpick. thanks so much for looking and commenting i appreciate all the kind words :) have a fun creative day! shelly
