Dare to get Dirty ~ Distressing with Christina


My goodness!! August is just around the corner!! This summer is just flying by!! Well, I'm excited to be sharing some "Dare To Get Dirty" challenge cards the next few days. Today, I made a sample for Christina - aka: cmf1216 on Splitcoast Stampers. Her challenge was distressing. If you've frequented my blog enough, you'll know I LOVE both ink and paper distressing, so I used both on my card. :)


The sentiment is from the Verve set Words Cannot Express, the dp is Journey by Authentique, and the butterfly is a die from Marianne Design. Notice the little clothes pin? I added some glitter to it to bling it up a bit. I love me some sparkle!! I also added some sparkle to the butterfly with Versamark and Iridescent Ice ep by Stampin' Up!.

Well, that's it for today. Check back tomorrow to see a card I made with a Sketch designed by Amber ~ aka: AmberDawn on Splitcoast Stampers. I love me a good sketch!!

Oh my gosh! I love this Tosh! Everything about it is beautiful. You used some of my favorite colors and the twine and well that butterfly is to "die" for. Ha ha, no pun intended. LOL Where did you get that die? I need it! {{hugs}}

What a breathtaking butterfly card. This couldn't possibly be any prettier. You even tied the burlap string to resemble a butterfly even if it was unintentional - it works so beautifully. I just LOVE your new signature block. It is so sweet and vintage. I adore the sheet music background and the little robin with the blush colored flowers. Such sweetness!
