Lace ATC swap at the altered page

Hi All
well have managed to get my ATC made for the lace swap at
My partner is Tee
I used a lace look deco patch paper for my background and added some lace to the bottom of the ATC, I had an image of a girl in lace which I printed on velum.  I added buttons and a key, and some contrasting blue butterfly wings

I hope you like it Tee, it's on it's way!!!

Gingersnap challenge : GC136 glorious greens and do you stack up: anything goes

Hi Bloggers, what a horrible day we are having here today in Cornwall, just the kind of day to sit by the wood burner and craft !
So I have managed to find some time to do just that!
I have made a ATC for the gingersnap challenge and the challenge at do you stack up !
To enter these click on the links below.

I have also entered it into the challenge : anything goes at

Here it is!

I made a capsule to place on the green background paper, and tore up a postcard printout I had, I used walnut distress ink to give the card and torn papers a aged look.

I used a moth from one of Tim Holz sticker books, and then covered this in glossy Accent.  I had a key brad that I added and also the translucent green heart.

For the lettering I dyed a newspaper with tea and tore out letters.

I added the green mica beads for added interest.

I hope you like it !
Oh by the way the card that I was going to show you all has been mislaid among my crafting kayos, some might say Junk :)
I'm sure it will show itself one day !
