I did the Faux Linen technique for this card to give it a wonderful aged look...I love this swirled pattern from the Prints Designer Series Paper from SU! and decided to use the Always Artichoke to mat my image and Certain Celery to accent the card. I stamped my image first onto the glossy cardstock then sanded vertically and horizontally. I took alot of color off as well adding my linen look. After I wiped the dust away I ran my Creamy Caramel inkpad all over the image and then buffed it with a paper towel. I really like how this Styled Silver Hodgepodge Harware looks and really wanted to incorporate it into my card, so I went looking through my retired sets and came across this from the Designer Label set, that originally came with the label punch. I didn't like the look of just brads holding the label on so I punched a hole in the middle of my ribbon and put the brad through it. Then I attached the brads to the card and finally tied my knots. I'm really liking how this card came out! I hope Camilla likes it as much as I do!!
