Aged to Perfection

Good morning.  Hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday Monday, I know I am - major crafting day for me - brilliant.

We start a new challenge at Crafting from the Heart today also.

Challenge 159 is sponsored by

When I saw this image, Stella Birthday, Aged to Perfection,  I just fell in love with it.  Maybe because I am soon to reach to 60, it just appealed to me.

I have kept it simple, I started with an basic white 8x8 card followed by a piece of navy blue card which I pricked around the edges in Sue Wilson style.  I then used a piece of patterned paper from my crafty stash which I ran through an embossing folder and then distressed around the edges.

I have also distressed the edges on my image and sentiment and matted those onto some more navy card.

Follow the link HERE to our blog challenge where you will find more ideas from our design team and also you can enter your own project into the challenge.

Thank you for visiting today.  Hope to see you again soon.
