All Our Yesterdays

It's time for a new challenge over at Crafting for all Seasons and this time the theme is - Many Layers.  I also need to announce the winner of my blog candy, thank you to everyone who joined in the fun, the randomly drawn winner from the comments left on my blog was:

Now back to this weeks challenge, we have two fab sponsors this week:


Well, 'Many Layers' means only one thing to me - DECOUPAGE - so I decided to use some of my Joanna Sheen's Faye Whitaker 'All Our Yesterdays' Decoupage for this challenge and I followed the sketch at retro sketches - my card is very different in style from the DT cards and all the other entries, but I think I will still give it a go.

The papers are a free download from Crafter's Companion, I have my great team mate Helen, aka Crafty Mama Mia, from The Crafty Pad DT to thank for reminding me about these.  I don't know about you, but I always download freebies and then promptly forget that they exist!  The card stock is Core'dinations and the sentiment is a Studio Light stamp.  I used a spellbinders die to cut the little scalloped edges on the sentiment and the border and the raffia is from my stash.

This is the inside of my card:

Lora said...

What a fun image. Love the papers you have used and can't believe they were freebies! I'm like you, I download freebies and then they are never looked at again. I really should just download them and then use them but there's so many out there and I might just need them one day LOL.
Thanks so much for joining us at Digital Tuesday this week.
