Fancy a bit of Rough?

Thats what I fancied (oo-er I hear you say!) and thats exactly what I did ... or tried to do purely to take me out of my comfort zone! 
I am a big fan of clean cut lines, and whilst I love projects with rough edges whenever I try to give it a go it never looks right ... until today! 

I made a quick and easy card using a LOTV square. 


I dug out some papers which were loose in my box so I have no idea where they came from who who makes them! I mounted onto whitewash core-dinations card and used my distressing tool on the edges and sanded heavily (think about the colour of a snowman and thats what I looked like after I finished!) I added 3 little gems to the bottom, a sentiment at the top, and added a die cut skeleton flower and 2 die cut and embossed flowers to the bottom with an epoxy dot in the centre. The skeleton flower and diecut flowers are a Marianne die which I only started using recently, I must admit I love the look of it, and they are so easy to use! think you might be seeing a few more of these! LOL 

Hope you like it!
