A new adventure with Crafty Anns

Good morning! Blogger Friends!

Sorry I am a tad late with this, Me Blogger is giving me some attitude and has deleted all my scheduled posts! And I have the sexy DH home for the weekend, so I am anywhere but near my craftroom and computer :P

Today I am very excited to share with you all some 
Exciting news! 

I am very happy and greatly honored to now be DT-ing with the gorgeous girls at

Thank you girls so much, I have really had a great time with my 1st challenge!
And boy do we have a wonderful challenge for you for my debute! 

Scallops / And or Fancy Border(s)

This week I was a very lucky girl and I used the adorable Bird on Blossom Branch from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop or you can click HERE to go directly to all her gorgeous images!

This is my card that I had lots of fun playing with!

As per my usual lol I went with a vinatge / distressed theme, it just seemed to work so well with the image.  I forgot at the time that I could have got my fancy scissors out and used them so I was more thinking of the scallops theme as I made this.  I incorporated the scallops with the blue ric rac, the scallop heart die and the scallop matt border for the image - things you think of in hindsight, but I am more than happy and impressed with how my card turned out!

I used lots of embossing powder and heat setting to help give many of the elements a aged effect, for the 'Dream ticket' I used my embossing powders and achieved the shattered glass look, love love love all the aspects of this card!
