You are just the ticket!

I crafted. Woah. I am rusty. It's amazing how you loose your flow after not crafting for a while. I think it will come back to me after a few more projects! :) Let's hope! Don't judge this card too harshly! Haha!

I used Harold's ABCs to come up with a custom sentiment for these awesome Pink Paislee tickets that I bought. I also thought it would be fun to make a card that was fun and cute with these tickets that are more shabby/distressy. :)

I colored my tickets with Distress Inks and my foam ink blending tool. I stitched around the tickets and the whole kraft piece. Oh my I had to fight with my sewing machine. I finally got it working again! Thank goodness! I don't know who would have eventually won that battle. I am glad we were able to compromise. Hehe :).

Thank you so much for coming by and seeing my back-to-crafting card!
Card stock: Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Harold's ABCs)
Ink: ColorBox Fluid Chalk (charcoal), Ranger Distress (worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, scattered straw, shabby shutters, tumbled glass, milled lavender)
Etc: Sewing machine, Ink blending tool and foam, Pink Paislee House of 3 tickets

Have an amazing day,
