Oops guess what I forgot!

Vintage Bird

I was so pleased with myself yesterday, I got back into the blogging hotseat, I caught up with a zillion posts and left comments, I posted the new challenge & the winners post on Sophisticats and totally forgot to post my DT card on here - D'uh!!!

So here it is, better late than never! Gina set the challenge this week & it's distressing so hopefully you can see where I've distressed the edges of the cardstock & paper using my trusty SU distressing tool. For the bird I have shamelessly nicked the idea from my very talented friend Kaz, I've used the gorgeous new two-step bird punch as a template and chalked in the image which gives such a lovely soft effect.

Rest of the details:
Sentiment - SU! Fresh Cuts in Chocolate Chip ink
Cardstock - SU! Bravo Burgundy & Whisper White
Chalks - SU!
Paper,rose & lace from stash

Hope you can join in with the challenge this week
