Let's Rough It Up!!

OH how I love weekends.....I'd like it better if I wasn't working....but alas, I'm spending my Saturday at the library. *poo* But I do have a card to share with you for this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!!!

Our wonderful guest Krafty Girl, Krista is our hostess this week and she has asked us to 'Rough It Up'!! I love distressing, so I was more than happy to oblige! Feel free to distress your card using sponging, a distressing tool, ripping, tearing...whatever you like, just make it rough looking!!



For my card I used the lovely Lisette! I stamped her on Neenah with Memento ink and coloured her in with my Copics....surprise, surprise! I pulled out some of my favourite My Mind's Eye papers from the Pretty Please collection....aren't they sweet?? I coloured Lisette up and then, while she was still in the Nestie frame, I sponged her with some chalk ink.

I roughed up all the patterned paper edges....love that look....and put it on a Sparkle Bazzill Bling card base. I made this card while playing at my Mom's house, so I pulled out this gorgeous ribbon which matches perfectly!! I also used some of her pink flowers and put some Prima fairytale roses in the centers. I used this sentiment from our Tea Sentiments set and added some orange rhinestones!!



I hope you find some time this week to play along with our super fun challenge! If you can, be sure to link us up over at the KK Challenge blog and you could be the random winner of some new rubbah!!!

Happy kraftin'!

Awesome card!!!! I have some of that My Minds' Eye paper but haven't see the floral print. (I have the orange polka dot as well as several other papers in that line.) I didn't have time to participate in the charm challenge but I'll definitely play along with this one! Can't wait to see what surprises are in store for June. New stamps perhaps? :)
