Tim Holtz inspired background card #1

If you follow the Country View Crafts challenge blog you will know that the theme this month is 'Inspired by Tim Holtz'. I played with the new distress oxides a little while ago and had fun making some backgrounds (you can see them here if you missed them) and I said I would use two of them to make a project, so I have made cards that could be used for Mother's day and Father's day. 

Although the background looked quite masculine I have made it into a shabby, more feminine card.


Please hop on over to the CVC Project Blog if you have a moment to see it in it's full glory.

Take care.
