Cute Card Thursday - Getting edgy!

This is the card I have made for this weeks cute card thursday challenge where they would like you to either tear, sand, distress or sew the edges of your card.

The image was kindly sent to me by one of my friends over on the do crafts forum. I love her, she looks like she has got so much attitude! She has been coloured with a mixture of my whispers, watercolour pencils and distress inks. CS is coredinations and I have sanded it with an emery board before distressing further with my TimHoltz distress inks to give it that aged look. I then created a faux stitched effect around the edges of the card by piercing holes and joining them up with brown ink. DP is from DCWV christmas stack, sentiment is from the SU 'Best Yet' set, mounted onto a scalloped circle cut with my nesties and added to my card base with 3D foam. To finish I have added a heart embellished flat clip from Making Memories!

Well what a glorious day it is. The sun is shining and I am looking forward to going to Jules' 'Roll on Summer' SU workshop this afternoon. I have been looking at the projects we will be making on her blog and they look fab!

Well I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and enjoy the lovely sunshine!

Edit - Well I had a wonderful time at Jules' SU workshop this afternoon, made some great projects, met some lovely ladies and had a yummy cupcake that Jules had handbaked herself, thanks Jules! A special hi to Jill as well, thanks for keping me company this afternoon and good luck with dissertation! I will take some pics of the things we made and upload them in the next few days!

Hugs, Vicky x
