TRR Challenge #22 'Weathered'

Welcome friends to another fun fortnightly challenge at The Ribbon Reel!
Helen
is our fab host and has chosen this beautiful inspiration photo.....


...and ask that you create a card /project using the colours KRAFT, WHITE, BLUE with touch of RED, NATURAL TWINE/TWILL!

Here is my card...

I love when I see other cards that are full of layers and embellishments but can never seem to get it right or feel happy with the results, so most of my cards are quite simple. However, I decided to have a good go with this card and just love how it turned out!


I distressed the edges of the paper to give it a weathered look, as well as inking the kraft cardstock with white ink. Added a strip of hessian (which I recently found after digging around my craft cupboard - its amazing what you can find isn't it!) and folded a paper doily in half on top.


I chose just to use embellishments rather than images, layered up some circles cut with my nesties and covered with a gorgeous white tea rose and blue rose. Not forgetting that gorgeous red crochet heart. I just adore it! And of course, not forgetting, I layered red satin ribbon with our new white sheer box pleat and a little natural button twine!

Cardstock - MME papers, Kraft cardstock
