This card is for the challenge over on "Just Magnolia" blog this week -- distressing. And oh, yes, I did distress... Here's the distressed part: I used Tim Holts distressing tool around the CS layers, then sponged Vintage Photo ink by Ranger on the distressed edges. I layered a Lattice die cut (SU Exclusive die) over the Crushed Curry layer and sponged over it also. Over-stamped the layers with "Small Trailing Butterflies" from Rubber City Cafe in SU Basic Brown . Here's the Magnolia part: The actual Magnolia image has a teeny tiny tag and butterfly on it, but I covered them with bigger punched versions by Martha Stewart. I hand wrote "Birthday Hugs" onto the tag, and threaded a little bit of hemp fiber through the end. I stamped "Small Trailing Butterflies" by The Rubber Cafe onto Taken with Teal CS before punching out the butterflies. The butterfly images didn't match the stamp exactly but it was a pretty good fit! I added glitter to the roses -- which maybe you can see better in this picture: TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
