For my card today, I went shabby chic. I thought this sentiment from More than Love would look great on the Tim Holtz journaling ticket that fell out of my closet when I was trying to find something for another card, so that was my inspiration. I embossed the sentiment in early espresso and did a bit of sponge and paper distressing around the ticket. All of the paper is from the Teresa Collins World Traveler collection and I actually cut the primitive heart intending to use the other side of the paper, but I just loved the way the black damask popped against the other papers I chose, so I changed it up. A bit of vintage lace trim, a prima flower and a whole lot of distressed edges finish things off.
