Fairy Fun Fridays week 16



It's time for a new challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays and it's nearly my last one - just one more challenge next week and then I'm done, it's going to feel very strange not being a part of this team anymore! Our challenge this week is 'distressing'... now regular visitors to my blog will know that distressing isn't my usual style. I went through a stage of distressing everything for a few months ages ago, got bored with it and didn't really bother again. However, I have to say I really enjoyed making this card :o) Maybe I'll do more of it, you never know. It upsets the perfectionist in me though, I do like my finished card to be as perfect as possible! Anyway, I'm rambling...

I've used this lovely Summer Fun image from Prairie Fairy, coloured with promarkers. The papers are a download, from Sweet Shoppe Designs I think, fairly sure the sentiment is also from there. Cardstock is coredinations and buttons are MME. I've distressed the papers and cardstock with my scissors, then machine stitched the papers, and I would've liked to stitch the corner pieces and around the image but I'm not quite brave enough yet - well it is only the 3rd time I've used my sewing machine on a card!

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
