Be the world to one person

Woohoo, I'm back! I'm so happy to be showing you today's card. I'm also very happy because I'm getting some of my strength and mojo back. I will post at least one sweetpea project/week on my blog to fulfill my DT commitment, but I'm hoping to extend it to one sweetpea and one other as I have many stamps that haven't even seen ink yet. Poor things.

I'm also planning for a candy as my blogoversary is this month, I'm launching a new blog called crafter's guide and hopefully will put up a bunch of things in my etsy shop. Phew, so much to do...

Today's card is a distressed one - one of the things I'd like to be better at. I used spring spread from sheet 13 plate 42. The text is also a sweetpea stamp from sheet 7 plate 29.
All of the papers are from Basic Grey, but I'm not sure about the name of the lines. One of them in blush, but the background with small flowers and the beige one are from one line I can't remember the name of.

I used a LOT of challenges for this one and I had so much fun. I think this is my record. Here's the list:

ABC - charms
Bunny Zoe's - vintage
By the cute and girly - indian summer
Crafty Emma's store - floral frenzy

I love promarkers - myth and magic (check out her fingers)
Magical monday - flowers
My partner in crafting crime - vintage
Papertake weekly - one (I used one charm or brad)
Pile it on - layers
Resonable ribbons - flowers (+some kind of ribbon/lace)
Simon says stamp - pearls and lace
Simon says stamp and show - layers
Stampin for the weekend - shabby/vintage
Stamptacular sunday - distress it
The shabby tea room - something old (papers) and something new (stamps)
