GDT Anything Goes Challenge Blog - The Letter D

Terrific Tuesday to you all! 

Today I have my last Guest Design Team card with 

It has been great fun playing along with the girls this month 
and I must say a huge thanks for having me! 

Sad things aside though ... This fortnights challenge is ... 

The Letter D!

D - Dream and Distress are the first things that come to mind for me so that is the direction I headed in :) and I have used a sentiment from again the lovely Ginger at Gingers House.

As I really wanted to show the Distress in the card stock I went with a CoreDimension piece for this card and gave it a generous sanding.  The flowers are handmade and the edges have been distressed with inks and white acrylic paint.  I also used the white acrylic paint to distress the edges of the sentiment and the corrugated green cardstock.  I found some vintage lace while rumbling through my stash and thought it would match perfectly to finish the card.  I kept all the embellishments fairly simple this week as I also wanted to have this in my stash for a unisex card if I need one.  I love how textured the whole end result came up and am really happy with this card today! 

This week there is an awesome prize up for grabs,
