Card Patterns Sketch 114

Happy Saturday! It's Card Patterns day again, and our generous sponsor this week is once again the independent SU! Demonstrator Catherine Pooler. Here is my sample for sketch 114:

Another shabby little card. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper with scissors and inked them up a bit. The seam binding is hand died with black tea. So easy and fun! I tried some fruit tea to achieve a soft pink result, but it turned out mauve. Looks good, too!

Please come over to Card Patterns and join us this week! I would love you to!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!
