How bad am I? I can't remember the last time I got to do a card for a challenge!
Before I go onto my card tho I want to apologise for any mistakes you see in this post - my keyboard has decided to test my typing skills by turning a few keys blank! I'm no touch typist and now my N & M have decided to 'rub' clear I very often get them muddled! Thankfully spellcheck should pick most of them up! I'm so tempted to re-write them on with Tipex!
Onto my card.........
This is a card using a few techniques that I've been wanting to re-visit for a while - using a quote rather than an image, doilies (which I have loads of now but have not yet used!), the crumpling up the card bit to be honest that was one of those 'mistakes'... I'd creased the card putting it through the Cuttlebug so had to do something to hide it! I covered the whole quote and sentiment in clear embossing powder. The leaves are both MS punches - Christmas pressies I bought myself ;) The larger ones are a deep border punch that I then trimmed to length.
The main backing piece is a piece of one of the 'fill your own' boxes from The Papermill. I have loads of them here and now the shops are all closing down I wont be taking them back to refill :(
A couple of challenges I'd like to enter this card into....
Sketch & Stash - Sketch & Doilies

Cute Card Thursday - 'Out with the old' (old Papermill box!)
Secret Crafter Saturday - Tons of Texture (lace, embossing, doily, ribbon)
