A Day for Vintage

While inspiration blurfing for the past few days, I stumbled upon A Day for Daisies.  Gorgeous images lemme tell you - works of art, more like.  I tend to make cards that err on the whimsical side - something cute; something sweet with clean, crisp lines and lots of layers.  I love layers and I love cute. But I also love to distress - I think its one of my favorite techniques actually and I really don't get to do it all that often.  These images really caught my eye and if you go to the ADFD blog, the current challenge is to create something Vintage.  Awesome - a way to get my distressing in :)  Amazingly, this image is offered for free for you to use in the challenge - just in case you don't have any ADFD images to play with.  There is still time to play along - the challenge runs until March 3rd.  So if you're feeling a little vintage, stop on by and give yourself a chance to win!
