Butterfly Girl With Mischief In Her Eyes

Today’s post is short and I hope you find the card to be sweet.This image is one of many available on Divas D’Este’s  Angelic Girls CS. I printed the CS onto photo paper, slightly distressing the image. One of my favourite tools for distressing is an old emery board.  
To create layering I tore two pieces from Divas D’Este’s “French Script” CS, distressing by crumpling and sanding.
Divas D’Este also run an Etsy store called Urban Renewal. I’ve mentioned this store previously but wanted to let you know that new items have been added. There are a wide range of items  including hard to find paper ephemera, a glass rolling pin, bottles, a china doll’s head, the list goes on and on. Alongside the vintage are items made by Di including a stunning Under The Sea necklace. The link is above and also on my sidebar if you wish to pop over and do some window shopping although beware as I am sure at least one item will catch your eye!

    I do find the card to be sweet, me thinks maybe the butterfly girl image has something to do with it.
