Distressed Marie

I had that rare opportunity to stamp all afternoon yesterday! This card came out of a few different challenges but started with Simon Says which asked us to Show Our Favorite Stamp. Marie from the RRD Relish Reading set has always spoken to me. Her pensive but vaguely haughty expression just makes me smile.

The layout for this card came from the latest Freshly Made Sketch - #34. I loved that I would have a bunch of lovely panels with which to play. Craft Your Passion has a challenge for Distressed/Torn Edges. I decided to add a distressed edge to all my panels! I also added some sponging to the edging to make it more pronounced.  The paper is all from a BasicGrey 6x6 pad.

Stamps: Marie and sentiment from
Relish Reading plate (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Hope you have a wonderful day and get to daydream a little bit along the way!
