Vintage Campervan


Here is something I haven't done for a while, just used a diecut as the main focus of my card. Isn't this campervan fabulous. It is a Tattered Lace die, not one I am sure I would use that much so when I saw somebody selling diecuts on Facebook thought that was better than spending out on the die. I asked for them to be cut in Core'dinations so I could sand and distress it. The papers are MME Portobello Road, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I also used a MS border punch, MB banner die and a Dovecraft Curiosity Corner doily.

Challenges
Simon Says Monday I ought to use this more often (diecut as main image) 
Rhedd and Rosie Anything goes 
Sister Act Anything goes 
Bizzy Becs Anything goes

I am out for the day today, breakfast at Cafe Rouge and a haircut and then food shopping.

Ooh, different for you hun, but still super! I think the TL dies are pretty but horribly expensive so die cuts seems a great solution. Hugs xx
