Thursday Thoughts

My card for today is for the current Uniko Studio colour challenge with a distress or vintage theme.  I've been thinking about what to do for this challenge for a while and then BAM! the answer just hit me.  Consequently the card came together in no time at all despite being a multi layered affair.

First I used my inkylicious duster brushes to add colour to the background and distressed the edges with my scissors. I used the Graphic Flowers die to cut some matching patterned paper and distressed the edges.

Next I stamped the heart in two toning colours, cut it out and then distressed and inked the edges. I punched a butterfly, distressed the edges and added some rick rack, a button and twine bow. Finally I stamped the sentiment. I'm quite smitten with this card!
