For my card today I wanted to do a little distressing. Something out of my comfort zone. I love what some of the other Diva's are able to do when it comes to shabby/chic/vintage.
I just can't seem to pull it off myself as I always go back to straight clean lines.
Baby steps, right?

The images come from the sweet set called Better With You.
See those cute little hearts? Those were made using the From The Heart Die Set.
My tag was done with the Sweet Scallop Die.
Stamps: Better With You; Cardstock: Kraft, MME Lost & Found DP; Inks: Black; Accessories: Sweet Scallop Die, From The Heart Die, Sewing, Dimensionals, Twine
