Quilted Joy

Happy Day to you and yours....I hope you are having a lovely day so far!!! Today I have a card that probably looks REALLY familiar...LOL...that's because it looks a lot like the card I made for the Bitten by the Bug challenge for this week....I posted it on Monday...but anywhooooo.....I actually made this card first....you know kinda like a test run.....but I really like how it looks. It's like an old quilt, tattered and torn.......and then the distressed look of all the other details.
Here I used another Scrapnfonts doodlebat from the set called DB 'Tis The Season Modern and the font is called SNF Classy Charm. I cut out the marquee cut from the Cricut Storybook cartridge and then printed my doodlebat on there. I colored in the doodlebat with my Copics and added some red rhinestones for the berries on the wreath....then I distressed the heck out of the whole marquee with my cats eye chalk ink. Instant oldness...LOL!!! And I don't know if you can see it good enough, but the ribbon is distressed as well.....I poked holes in it and then tied loose knots in it.
I know I've said it before...several times...but I love this look.....why, I'm not sure...but I really love it!!! To add to the distressed look I sanded the card stock and ripped and tore the paper under the "quilt squares", then inked it all up to finish it off. Okay...that's it...the same ole card as Monday....but, I really liked it so I wanted to show you!!!! Okay...join me tomorrow and I hope to have something finished to show you.....I have several things made up....but I can't share them quite yet....soooo, I'm working on something to post tomorrow for your viewing pleasure..hee hee hee!!! Oh and if you haven't already visited the Bitten by the Bug site.....please do...we have a contest going on right now!!!!

Beautiful girl! I love this card!!! I agree with you, I think it looks just like a quilt that's been worn to pieces out of love. Another awesome card! Hugs!!!

I just love this distressed look DeeDee but there is definitely an art to it. When I try it either looks like a mistake or I rip the heck out of it and have to start all over. Yours is perfect! xxD
