Time passes.....

I was trying for aged and shabby and yet beautiful!
I really like this card! It has elements that i like and I created my own layout this time!!!! it's distressed and inked up and sponged and looks pretty beat up...I like it. I even sewed around  the cream and brown polka dot edges to help distress them. I don't do vintage well at all, so this will be as close as I can get. The leaves were popping out the top of the bow, but someone said the card looked better with out them. Rhonda, looking at it now, you were right! They are lying on the table top there in the photo.  This image is available at Daisy's Digi Doodles. You'll find it under miscellaneous ...wheelbarrow. You can also go check out the gallery within the store to see how other DT members used their images on their projects. Just click on Gallery and it will take you to the albums of the DT. Right now the DT is in the middle of their challenge at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge Blog called Summertime. You are welcome to join the challenge as it's open til next Sunday. If you have a recent creation that depicts Summer then head on over there and post your pic. Remember it must be a digi and you need to link your pic to your post!!

Who said you don't do aged and shabby, you do it very well. I like it better without the leaves too.

Lovely! What a lot of work you've put into this card Joanne. I think it has just the right amount of shabby chic style - that wheelbarrow is SWEET!
