Shopping Our Stash #198~~Opposite Day

Challenge #198 Opposite Day we want you to -- use something that is opposite of your usual style. For example, if you are usually CAS, use a really frou-frou ribbon.  Head over to Shopping Our stash and check out the rules for entering and while you are there see what the DT has made.  I really don’t have an idea what my usual style of crafting is except I know I don’t go overboard on the frills and I’m not a CAS crafter, what I don’t like to do is distressing so here is what I made for the challenge.
I used the elephant from a retired set from Stampin’ up called In the Wild. Every thing but the base is from the scrap file, the flourish was sitting on my desk. The black brads are my last two in the container.
Close up of the distressing on the image and layers.
I used the rest of the vellum for the sentiment on the inside and added the butterfly that was also sitting on my desk, a left over from another project.
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you will join us for Opposite Day and tell us what your usual type of creating is.

I know people who physically shudder at the thought of tearing paper, so WELL DONE! I love the vellum, and that stamp set might be in my Keep Forever collection.
