Sky's the Limit !!

Hi Friends ,
Today I have a quick share of a card I have made for the BGC challenge "Sky's the Limit " and here's my take on it :                                                          
And a side view of my card :                                                                            
As you can I have kept it very simple and done a lot of stamping and distressing to create my background ..Its been quite some time since I have done a stamping only card ..Well I think I really need loads of practice for this and the faux sticthing  that  I have done is too sloppy :( ..I was in a hurry to get this card finished as this challenge is getting over in a few hours !..But I hate sloppy work and I almost didn't post this card but  as I have been meaning to play along this challenge for quite some time now I went ahead and blogged about this card .
So be kind people :)

  10. Huseena you are too hard on yourself...It is a stunning card and I was so drawn to it when I saw the thumbnail on my dashboard. Drooling over the way you made the background..please do consider a mini tutorial for the sky when you get time. I have attempted making skies in the past and always ended up with a storm!!
