D2D Designers challenge

The designers challenge this week at D2D is European inspired. Well, I've never been to Europe, so I just kind of was winging it. I was going for a French Provincial kind of look. Don't know if I achieved it, but this image Baby Buggy~Heaven Sent sure was fun to work with.

I pieced the buggy with some digi paper. I used some stitching, distressing and inking to get an old timey look. I'm not great with inking edges, it always looks messy to me when I do it. I've colored the pin and pearls to go with my color scheme.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your weekend is going well.
