Vintage Tilda

Over on Just Magnolia the challenge this week is Vintage (a posh word for distressing) not sure if it worked out that well but in my mind I was trying to think Victorian. Which is why I used the lace and the roses.
The frame is cut from a cricut cartridge and then I foolishly used Tim Holtzs Rock Candy, it was like watching paint dry! It took ages or at least if felt like it, then I rub in some distress ink but it just looks like blobs instead of cracks. The papers are Imaginesce, all inked round the edges, Thankfully it looks better in RL.
Did you see that Simon Says Stamps spolighted me on their blog, Oh how embarrassing, they made me sound amazing when I'm just boring old me. I do hold SSS close to my heart they're were the first to ask me to be on their DT and I love every minute.

Ohh what a sweat card Debby! Love the lace and the roses.
No wonder they spotlighted you at SSS, you make the most beautiful cards and give me, and I think a lot of other people, a lot of inspiration!
