Everybody Art Challenge # 23 Sweet and Sassy

Hello and Happy Friday!!
Today's card I made for Everybody Art Challenge # 23 The theme this week was shabby. While I don't make a lot of shabby cards ( I usually prefer clean designs) I do love the look of vintage cards.
Now to my card. I used the cracked glass technique on the main image. You can find the tutorial here if you would like to try it. I had to use regular clear embossing powder since I don't have any UTEE so my cracked glass didn't turn out as good as I wanted it to.
For this challenge I had to get out my sewing machine from under my stamp desk, it was collecting dust. Please excuse the crooked stitching, but I guess it fits well with the "shabby" challenge. LOL.

Stamps: sweet and sassy stamp (sarah kay), small script (SU)
Paper: chocolate chip (SU), Designer Papers unknown-sorry, white GP110lb
Ink: black, choc. chip, versamark
Accessories: copics and watercolor pencils, paper and fabic flowers, ribbon, hodgepodge hardware, pearls, sewing machine, embossing powder, sponge for distressing ribbon and flowers
Technique: cracked glass, sponging, aging

Have a wonderful day!!
