Hopes and Dreams

A friend gave me this digi image from Create with TLC who has some fantastic images (thanks to Ildz the Crafty Witch for finding where it came from) and I decided to age it by rubbing on Distress Inks (Old Paper, Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap). I then added a bit of colour with Whispers Pens. It was then matted onto brown card (using Nestabilities Circles). The DP is from Laura Ashley Velvet Papers which was again matted onto brown card and then onto a creamy/yellowish square card blank. I added the sentiment (Crafty Individuals) giving it the same treatment as the image. The ribbon and brads were from my stash, the flourish is a Sizzix die (Flourish 11) and the gorgeous roses are from Wild Orchid.
I am entering it into the following challenges
One Stop Crafts - Patterns
Dutch Dare - Anything Goes

Hiya, just seen this digi and it's Pauletta's freebie from Creat with TLC.
I store my digi's in file by name and put the blog address as a file name so I know where I've got it from. If you go to Paulettes sight you find oodles and doodles of freebies (digi as well as world art)
Here is her blog link.
Just make sure you got a cupper with you and no one disturbs you.
Gorgeous card
