GDT Invite from Creative Craft Challenges

I was very pleased to win a challenge on the blog challenge http://creativecraftchallenges2.blogspot.com/ and was offered a GDT opportunity. I have to say when I was asked to do a distressed project I freaked, as I had never done one. I looked at a turtorial on this blog: http://gabriellepollacco.blogspot.com/ (the scrapbook Goddess blog) and waaaaa laaaaaa.... here is my first distressed card project. Thanks Creative Craft Challenge for pushing me past my cutsie comfort zone!
I was asked to use a LOTV image and this was the only one I had.

  3. Hi Rina. Your easel card is so cute! I love the colors you've used on the papers to make the actual card. The patterned pink papers are so sweet. I also LOVE the little flowers you've used to embellish with. They are so precious. Your little button and butterflies are wonderful little accents, too. Your colored little girl in the center is really nicely done and she coordinates so well with everything. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
