Return To Sender.

Time for another challenge over at 
Crafting From The Heart
The sponsor for this week

We were given some images to  use 
and I chose this 'Return to Sender' for my card.
To me it conjured up lost love  
so I made my card  vintage and shabby chic.

I printed off the envelope image and made it up into 
an actual envelope shape which I then screwed up.
After flattening out again I used some inks still on my
ink daubers to give it an aged look and just for 
good measure rang it through my Big Shot.
I think it looks like it has been round the block a bit now!
Used a cream card base and then bits and bobs still out
on my desk. Well it beats putting it all away.
The backing paper is from some sheets I marbled
a few weeks ago at craft class. The roses are die cut
from another sheet  . Green doily,canvas butterflies,
lace, green  rose shape ribbon and square pearls 
completed the look.

The theme is Anything Goes as usual
and we would love to see you entering
your projects.

That's a beautiful card Mrs.A. I love how you've used the 'Return to sender' on your crumpled envelope and the flowers are lovely. Barbxx

I wonder if they actually still do that these days, mind you, these days we are lucky to get a delivery at all
Lovely card, gorgeous flower display and love the crumpled envelope, is it wet as well, as that seem to be the norm when we have any post, crumpled and wet.
