Card for Fashionable Stamping Challenges

As I was in the mood for creating a card today I thought I would join in with a new challenge blog fashionablestampingchallenges
The theme this week was easy, "Anything goes". No digis are allowed, so really stamping only.
I used a Bo Bunny Time Piece stamp set and created my background with distress inks Victorian Velvet, Chipped Sapphire and Weather Wood. I also used a Stempel Glede stamp and a Judikins stamp embossed with clear embossing powder for the background. The Lock and Key are part of the time piece set. I grunged them up with distress stickles and various colours of Perfect Pearls.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
