De-stressing with Distressing

There is a new challenge today at Incy Wincy, and the theme to play along with this week is distressing. This is not my normal technique, so bear with me on this one !!!  I've torn, sanded, inked and generally done everything I can to ruin 3 layers of perfectly lovely bits of card, all in the name of distressing.  It just seems to go against the grain for me!  I've also used two twinkly white ribbons but they don't show up much in the piccy.

We're sponsored by the fabulous StampFairy who have kindly supplied some cute digi images for the design team to showcase.

Card Recipe:
Please pop on over to the Incy Wincy challenge blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.

What a lovely card Netty you do know there are many ways to distress, ie running scissors around the edges & also you could have wet the edges & rolled it that's a great look.
I love the ribbon & charm you used also the image is rather sweet too. Janet
