Two Challenges One Card!

There is another lovely sketch this week over at Sketch Saturday and Basic Grey Challenge want us to "Mix It Up" using a mix of Basic Grey papers etc.

My card is made using papers from BG Archaic, Infuse and Periphery ranges. I used the gorgeous stamp I got from the sweet and kind Dawny P.

I layered and distressed some of the papers, I stamped the image using Versafine Black Ink and die cut the face with my Nesties, I added some highlights to the eyes and lips with a Sakura Stardust pen, added some lace, flowers and a gorgeous charm Pascale sent me this week. I stamped some wings and some birds in the corners then punched some small circles, distressed the edges and added small brads to finish.
