It's so Distressing!

I tried my hand at an accordion fold card this week, was it every easy! For a quick card, I recommend this fold. I used one of Elisabeth Bell's images "Lil Lynda's Piano Forte", isn't she adorable!
I colored her with my Copics and of course, can't make a card without Glossy Accents which I applied to her bow, the roses on her pillow, music note on the piano and the dog collar. I used Tim Holtz Distressing Ink, Black Soot to distress the edges.

The sentiment "It's the little things in life that mean the most" is from Ginger's House. I used a black & white frame from Creative Memories, attached some paper flowers inside the frame and there you have it.
Now it's your turn! Make sure you check out the amazing creations from our Stamptacular Sunday Design Team!
