Wistful Love

Hello everyone, welcome to any who are visiting for the first time, Hope you find something to interest you!
I actually made a card from beginning to end at craft today because I was the only one on my table. It is very unusual for me to actually do this because I am usually helping someone else or haven't brought the right things with me. LOL, I like to have all my stuff so I can fossick in my stash and find just the right thing.
So here is my card for today's post - The card base is vanilla with the edges being distressed with ink. I used two different papers one to cover most of the card and the other to matte the image and sentiment. The image is from Kaszazz and is called Elegant Lady and the sentiment is from SU, I wanted to leave the image fairly plain but highlighted it by colouring the flowers with Marvy Markers which I applied with a blender pen. I also distressed the edges of the image fairly heavily to give it more of an aged look.
I'm going to enter this one into The Make It Monday Linky Party.
Off to watch a bit of tv and to play around with a few stamped images, I've got the fire going again as it's another cold night
So take care,
