Dare to Dream...

Good Morning! Happy Sunday...
Just popping on to share a card I made a couple of nights ago...

I've been practising distressing lately, as its something I love to see on other peoples cards, but something I've never managed to make look right on my own...
I did make this with a 'distressing' challenge in mind, but for the life of me, I can't find which challenge it was!!

as you can see, I haven't gone OTT just yet... I need to practice more first...
I've also tried something else I havent done much of... and thats paper piecing... as you can see I've stamped the image twice, first onto the patterned paper, and then onto white card stock for the sections I needed to colour... bit fiddly to cut out, but I like the end result!

My Gorgeous image is Faraway thoughts by Leanne Ellis 
The YUMMY, SCRUMMY papers are designed by my fab friend Tracy, and you can get them over at The Creative Cottage... they are from the Poppy Delight Paper set...
I've printed them onto textured linen cardstock, and they print fab!!
The image is mounted on DCWV green paper
Flower ribbon and moon charm are from stash
and 'dream' is handwritten..

I'm entering this card in the following challenges...

Thanks for looking today!!

Lovely card xx

I am the same with distressing!
I purchased a couple of inks and cut and dry foam whilst at Alexander Palace at the end of September.... I have practised, but like you, feel others are better... still practise makes perfect so they say Lol
