Corrosive Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all enjoying this glorious weather here in the UK.
Just come back from a lovely few days visit with my daughter in Manchester.  Couldn't resist doing a bit of girly shopping while I was there and of course, sipping Pimms in a pub beer garden just had to be done lol.
I didn't really get chance to look at the computer and am a bit behind with my commenting.  My apologies for not visiting you all but will try and catch up over the next few days.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Corrosive Challenges.  This is the last challenge for the month of May with our sponsor Tickled Pink stamps.
This fortnight our challenge theme is "Not Too Shabby".  We would like to see all your vintage/shabby chic creations.  The design team have come up with some gorgeous projects for inspiration if you want to pop over.

It is my future son-in-law's birthday next week so thought I had better get on and get his cards made.  This is a vintage topper from Kanban and was just perfect for his card.  I used some coredinations and some papers from Papermania.  I used my distress tool to distress all the edges.  The little cogs are some peel offs that I have had for ages.  For the sentiment (from Craftwork Cards) I cut out one of the largest cogs and mounted my sentiment onto it.  The topper and the sentiment were put on using foam pads to give some dimension to the card.  A ribbon and some buttons were the finishing touches.

Looking forward to seeing all your creations.  If you think that shabby chic or vintage is not your style why not give it a go, you may be pleasantly surprised.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew - Dimension
Whimsy Stamps - Vintage/Shabby chic
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Crafty Catz - Card for a man
Aud Sentiments - Any sentiment
One Stop - For the boys
Allsorts - Happy Birthday to someone special
Robyns Fetish - Birthday with sentiment on front
Joanna Sheen - Remember when
Here Come The Boys - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by.
Take care.
