Marion Smith Designs & Petaloo Blog Hop: Day 2

Today is Day 2 for the blog hop!!!
Did you see these amazing creations yesterday!!!
 You can see them more in details here,

My Card!!
Here is a shabby chic card I created using Marion Smith Designs-Garment District Paper Collections and Junque & Gems along with the pretty Petaloo Velvet Hydrangeas in Aqua Blue and Botanica Collection Spring Berry Clusters in Pink.
I just love the touches of glitter on the flowers!!

Distressing the edges of the dress form paper....
1. damp with water
you can use a brush, spray bottle, or dab it on.
2. rub and roll back the paper from chipboard
3. keep wetting and rolling back the paper
until you get the look and depth you want.
I am so thankful for getting to create with Marion's products 
and Petaloo flowers, they all work so well together.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Don't forget  to hop over to the other blogs and see the beautiful creations.
