Distressing printed paper!

Hello bloggers,

First of all, a welcome to my new followers, Marlena Pedussi and Dusty Davi  - it makes me so happy to see my list of followers grow!

I made this card to participate in the challenge hosted by http://diecuttindivas.blogspot.com/ the theme being a sketch. Sorry, am too lazy to copy and paste the sketch.

I have done a lot of distressing here and that kinda of de-stressed me... lol!




Supplies:

Base card stock - red
Black stock - light weight card
Printed paper - new wrapping paper, distressed with Tim Holtz fired brick
Red embossed paper - distressed with Tim Holtz soot black
Sentiment - embossed with CB and distressed with Tim Holtz fired brick
Heart shaped border - MS and distressed as well with fired brick
Black Ribbon - American crafts

I am also going to submit this for the following challenges:
http://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/ - embossing of any kind


Hope you like it...

Hugs,

Monica
