Just Magnolia - Challenge 56


This is my entry for the Just Magnolia Challenge this week.
This week there was a sketch to follow, and I really enjoyed it :)
I wanted to go for a faded/bleached out denim look, with just a tiny bit of distressing on the DP.  It really feels wrong to rip and damage paper, but I love the look of distressed cards, so I'm trying to get used to it gently! lol.

Anyway, this was made again using HOTP papers (I'm working my way through the pad, as I have 2 of them!) and I used an MS punch, card candy, distressed stickles and I die cut the leaves and flowers.  I also hand stitched the back panel again, as it doesnt take too long, and helps me think about my design.

I am also entering this in the Charisma Cardz 3d Challenge - its 3d this week, and my nestie is on foam pads, and my flower is hand made and layered on top of the leaves.

Those colours & the stitching really work a treat. i too love the distressed look & you really achieved it here - know what you mean about the tearing/filing of edges.
