Challenge #Thank you/Love Sew many Challenges
Challenge #Shabby or Vintage  Stamping for the Weekend
Challenge #Add a charm  Totallypapercrafts
Challenge #Tag you're it  The shabby tea rooms

For this project I used a digi stamp from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique called "Letter's home" by Stitchy stamps and coloured with copics.  I kept to the brown's with just a pop of burgundy to fit it with the vintage theme.  I distressed with a cordroy distressing ink pad and used a distressing cracked paint effect and distressed stickles to age image.

I also ripped the edges of one of the other backing papers and distressed with the same ink.  The tag was a Magnolia die and I distressed in the same way.

I embellished with a burgundy flower, heart charm and pearl gems.  I think this makes an ideal Thank you card.
