Hope your day is Just Peachy

Good morning campers! Today's card is for this month's Creatalicious Challenge, which is:

Something old
Something new
Something torn
Something blue

My something torn and something blue are obvious; my something old is the retired SU designer papers and my something new is my Peachy Tilda stamp. Here's my entry:

Created by Kez

When I was deciding what to do with this card, I thought "well, if I've gotta tear something then I might as well go the whole hog and distress as well", so that's what I did! The peach background paper is distressed using my sanding block and I also used the sanding block on the torn piece, as well as sponging and curling. The brown flowers are aged a little by being sponged with white and I punched the leaves from DSP which already has a worn look to it, then added some sponging and veins. Here's the inside of the card:

It was lovely to use these Afternoon Tea papers again; they were my favourite from last year. Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers
Kez

A definite winner Kez. What an awesome card. Luv it to bits!!! my fave thing is how her cheeks match the apples. I can never get my Tilda cheeks to blush like that. Every element is toned so beautifully & compliments so well. Stella card Kez!! ooxx
