A Distressed Friend Card


Hehe. Get it? I distressed the edges of the paper! Haha. Ok, I know, another lame title. :D I like it though. I made this card for Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I spent a lot of time on this card because I wanted it to be perfect. Julee gives away a prize for her favorite choice cards once a month and this is the week! I doubt I will win, but I can always try! :D If you don't try her challenges, you should! They are lots of fun and you can tell she really thinks about them. To give this card the distressed edges I sponged each piece with Mellow Moss and then rolled the edges up. I like the look it gives. A kind of dirty, yet classy, look (imho). Thanks for putting up with another card tonight. I am finally off to bed!

Recipe:
Stamps: All Holidays, Doodle That
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Basic Black, Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, Ginger Blossom dsp
Ink: Black StazOn, Mellow Moss
Accessories: SU! Markers, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Punches, Paper Piercer, Brads, Sponge Daubers
