Superior Quality

This is my second card for Make It Monday: Distressed Edges.  This card was fun to make.  I don't often do this style.  It doesn't come naturally to me, but every now and then it works.  It's a fun feeling when it all seems to fall into place.

I realize, though, that I forgot a sentiment. 
I'll probably add something to the bottom left corner later.


On this card I distressed the entire card base as well as the button card.

Hope your week is going well!

Ink: Memento Brown and Pink, PTI Tea Dye Duo

  1. Wow! This is such a nice card,you did a great job. Love the soft pink too.
    We have a German Shepard too. He is the kindest, best dog we have ever owned. It's ok that some people are afraid of him. We know better.

  8. Kara,
    This is so pretty. I just love that button stamp collection from PTI! You recently questioned the medium I use to color in my images. I use Stampin' Up markers and their watercolor blender pen. I would love to get into the Copics but have yet to purchase any. I love the way they look!
