Cabbage Rose

Hi Folks
I bet I caught you by surprise posting this early in the day.  Had a bit of time last night so decided to schedule this post.  Really must try and get into the habit of doing this but that would mean I would have to be a bit more organised lol.

Anyway, todays card share is made using elements from one of the projects in the Create It magazine available from Kraftyhands.  This is a great magazine and contains 10 card projects with sketches, step by step photo instructions, hints and tips and featured techniques.  Included is an interactive CD-Rom with all the printable files for each project.  

I printed out all the elements for this project and then just free styled and did my own thing.  Of course, you can make up the project as it is in the magazine if you wish.

I went for a bit of a distressed feel and went around the edges of the papers with my distress tool and some distress inks.  The only additions I made were the resin flowers and some pearls.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I can't promise an early morning post tomorrow but I will try lol.
