Here is SSW-147:
Here is my take on the challenges:
I started with a card base of SU Sage Shadow and layered with patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market Street 6x6 pad. I distressed all the edges of the papers for a more shabby look. I also ink distressed the papers with Antique Linen Distress Ink. My sweet Elisabeth Bell image is Belles 'n Whistles Cupcake. I stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics. I ink distressed around the image panel also. I added a bow of hand-dyed seam binding and a vintage Wild Orchid Crafts rose. A few pale peach pearls finished my card.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see soon!
