I made this card for the MMSC115. It's kinda vintage, kinda of shabby chic, I guess. Whatever. I used an Crafty Secrets scrap which I crinkled and wrinkled, tore and distressed the edges with my fingernails and brushed with distressing ink. After which I pulled out the old sewing machine and sewed a little.
The other panels were distressed with ink as well. The flower cluster is a mix of paper and fabric flowers and has a couple of blingy stick pins and some crystal sticks.
Lastly, I pearled the corners of two of the mats and tied a string around one of the stick pins, which was dyed with Copics.
I'm really tired and ready for bed. I may edit supply list later.
Thanks for looking!
