All That Scraps Challenge ~ Distressing


Happy Wednesday ~ time for my favorite challenge!   This week we were to use Distressing on our cards.   This is always a real challenge for me, but I do have fun trying with my favorite distressing tool!   The so-cute image is a new C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies image called Birgitta on a tree stump.   



I pulled out my Basic Grey Indian Summer 6×6 paper pad for this one.  I was sooo happy to find these Prima Cherry Blossom flowers in my stash that seemed to match the colors perfectly!   I added some white candy dots to the corners and a ribbon from my stash.  Birgitta’s boots were painted with Smooch moonlight paint.  

You really MUST stop over at the All That Scraps Challenge blog to take a peek at the awesome cards from the Design Team!   I hope you can join us in this challenge.
