Timeless Tuesday #235 - In Distress

Wow!  I can't believe I got my card for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge done today, Tuesday!  Lately, it's been down to the last day.  It could have been because the minute I saw that we had to distress a card, I knew what I wanted to do immediately.  Now that doesn't happen every day.  Click HERE to go right to the Timeless Tuesday #235 - In Distress Challenge.

Graphic 45's patterned paper is perfect for that distressed look.  Today I used Secret Garden.  All but the card base are from the Secret Garden collection.  I didn't put a sentiment on the front of the card because I love what is on the cut out.  However, I did add it to the inside of the card and both are from a couple of my Flourishes stamp sets.

Stamp Sets:  Anemones and Swan Lake (Flourishes); Inks:  Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo (Ranger), Soft Suede (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Soft Suede and Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up!), Secret Garden Patterned Paper (Graphic 45); Accessories & Tools:  Pearl Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals and Stampin' Distress Tool (Stampin' Up!), Cream Twine distressed with Vintage Photo ink

This was such a fun challenge given the fact that I love the distressed look.  I don't do it nearly as much as I would like.

Until next time . . . happy creating!

  1. Another beautiful card Miss Marsha. Love the sentiments on cover and inside. My Mom had the serenity prayer on her dresser for a good part of her life and I grew up reading it over and over. For the longest time I thought she wrote it. {grin}
