Treasure the Moment!

Today is a new challenge for March/April at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog with the theme of Shabby Chic/Distressing. For my card I chose to use Elisabeth's new digi Li'l Lilian along with Little Best Friends as the tiny image being painted by Li'l Lilian.
This was way fun to create! I used my Martha Stewart corner and border punches, along with Prima DP. I did a lot of ink distressing with Tim Holtz distress ink-burlap to all the layers on this easel card. Also did up some fun chiffon fabric flowers and used some Prima paper flowers to add more texture, oh and a string of pearls and a feather.
The buttons are from a package I picked up at the LCS, along with the pearls for the stick pin. Added some tulle for more texture and some hemming ribbon. I followed the sketch over at
Found a stashed stamp "Treasure the Moment" and took a leap of faith (literally) and stamped right onto my card - whew - thank goodness I got it in the right position, didn't rock it, etc.
Also used Spellbinders die in my Cuttlebug and this time made SURE the image would fit before I printed and colored it - so unlike me - LOL.
Be sure to go over to Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog and check out the wonderful work my teamies did, and don't forget to use an image/stamp of Elisabeth's and enter the challenge!
Have a "Treasure the Moment" week!
