Shabby Mother's Day!

I just found this awsome sketch challenge from Card Patterns. I just had to try it. I am a fan of card sketches and this one was right up my ally. I found this awesome Marcella K dp and chipboard and it inspired this card for today. I used a lot of distressing and a lot of sponging on this card. I used the La Frances bg from SU and stamped it onto the dp, sponged it with Creamy Caramel ink and distressed the edges. I then sewed around the edges using my sewing machine. This has definitly become one of my favorites right up there with the cuttlebug. I have to pull it out almost every time I amke a card. The chipboard is also Marcella K and I used liquid embossing to make it stand out a little more.
Card Details:
Carstock: RiverRock (SU)
DP: Ancestory (MarcellaK)
Accessories: Chipboard (Marcella K), Ribbon, Pearls, Primas
