You're sew lovely!

Today's card is for all my lovely blog friends, followers and readers (aka lurkers :D)! Thank you so much for all the fabulous wishes yesterday on Friendship Day. My phone has been a real spoil sport and I wasn't able to reply to any of your messages. It kept showing some network connection error(hate it when that happens!).
But I hope you all had a great day and to compensate for not wishing you in time, I made a card just for you :D


Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps:Lawn Fawn (Sew Lovely); ink: Jenni Bowlin(Cough Syrup,Chewing Gum), Unity Stamp Co. (french Lilac),Faber Castell (black dye ink) ;embellishment: Pie Lane(Self-adhesive flower, Glitter Balls),

You might remember the dry brush technique I used on THIS card sometime back. I used the same technique to create the distressed look in today's card but instead of acrylics, I used the inexpensive Faber Castell dye ink. It leaves such a lovely effect. The swirls are hand-drawn and created using silver glitter balls from Pie Lane (Available for purchase with me, you can e-mail me to place an order).

This is my entry for the Lawnscaping Challenge#15 - Distressing Mania.

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
