~* Papercraft Star Challenge #20 Simon Says *~

Happy Aloha Friday!

Here's the card that I made for Papercraft Star Challenge #20 Simon Says. I was a little intimidated by all the matting, but I just cut up some pretty paper and went from there. I think the style is like Melissa Frances-vintagey ;p'. I had a lot of fun adding embellies! Hope you like it :)!

~Paper: ivory cardstock, Tapestry Vintage designer paper
~Inks: distress inks
~Misc.: Tattered Angels butterfly diecut, Melissa Frances crown, Martha Stewart ribbon, Prima baby rose, vintagey buttons, burlap twine (thanks Sam!), lace, Tim Holtz texture fade
