But please don't worry my friends, not for me for my card.
There are so many challenges out there at the moment that ask for distressing I thought I would give it a go. Now yesterday I popped in on my good friend Clare over at Crafty Clare and she too has done a card with distressing on it. Now she says she's not comfortable with distressing, but boy you'd never know it looking at her card! Well she inspired me to have a go and I'm actually quite pleased with the result.
Now there is not too much distressing on the paper although I did do all the edges (except round the image). I layered the image on to the same paper I have used at the bottom.
Craft's Meow (thanks Lisa) and the image is from a Challenge win over at Sophisticat - so these are all new.
The card is based on the current sketch at Delightful Sketches - number 14 and the other challenges I will enter are:
