Today's challenge at International Art & Soul is "Distressing"!!!  Now I get distressed at the very thought of distressing so it wasn't exactly the easiest card for me to make. But hey  that's what challenges are all about - pushing you out of your comfort zone.  Well I managed it and here is the result.  Not masses of distressing but enough I hope.

Please scroll down if you are looking for my CCC card

My Card

6 " square base card - made from Crafter's Companion cream pearlescent card
paper -  digi paper but unknown
pennant dies - Creative Expressions
flowers - The Craft Shed
sentiment - computer generated
pearls - the Hobby House
lace and ribbon - from stash

Well it turned out better than I thought it would which is always a bonus.  Please pop across to the blog and find out what my teamies have been up to! Maybe you will be inspired to join in with the challenge.

The sun is shining here so long may it continue.    Enjoy your day.

  7. Hi Christine
    I don't do distressed either, as a rule. Too much of a neat freak (except with housework lol!). This looks fantastic. It's distressed very neatly and hasn't been shredded within an inch of its life.
    Best wishes.

    Love and big hugs from my house to yours. Jenny L.
