Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #69: Distress It!

Hello, all!  I'd like to start by saying thank you to all who played along with the challenge I hosted the past fortnight over at Crafty Cardmakers!  There were some AMAZING creations--and choosing winners was really hard!  But let's talk about the NEW challenge, shall we?! :)  This week's challenge is all about DISTRESSING.  So, get your shabby chic on, people!

Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabledDigi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.
 And here's my card~

Details~



I had so much fun making this card!  I got to use a new set from Crafty Secrets called Material Girl--isn't that name a scream?!  I also used scissors to distress all the edges of my papers and added brown ink for an even more distressed look.  The fabulous papers are by Pink Paislee with Prima crystals for embellishment.
Can't wait to see other fabulous distressed creations this week, and won't you please go leave some love with my Design Team cohorts?!  They're so talented--you won't regret it!  Happy stamping!!!

Such a pretty card Mynnette, the papers are really lovely and so are the stamps you've used - love that dress form in particular. Your distressing is perfect, it gives a beautiful shabby chic look.

Fabulous card as always Mynnette. I'm glad that your card arrived safely, if rather late. Sorry I haven't had time to join in with Technique Tuesday this time, I will try again next month.

I love the vintage look to this - beautiful colours. It's the sort of look I love but never really achieve.Cxxx
