A Distressing Challenge--Sassy Cheryl's --It's Tuesday!!!

No, the challenge for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog isn't distressing but we are supposed to use distressing!!!  You all know that I do a lot of distressing with inks and distressing tools so this was right up my alley :)  I chose the oh so cute Missing You  image to use:

This was such a fun challenge.  The image was colored with copic markers and the edges were distressed with Momento Potters Clay ink. 
The main image was mounted on a piece of cs that had been punched around the edges with a MS double scalloped around the corner punch set.
The little butterfly in the upper left corner was embossed with a cuttlebug folder prior to being punched and sponged with the Potters Clay ink as well.
The rose flower was perfect for this card.  Lisa G. introduced the group regulars to  these beauties on a card she shared with us this week and was kind enough to share the tutorial link she followed.  The link to the tutorial is:

The paper circles were punched and distressed with my Heidi Swapp distressing tool .  A tiny punched flower was added to the smaller circle attached with a brad and the larger circles were also distressed and attached with a brad as well.

Are you ready for some exciting news about this week's challenge?  The DT is going to vote on the top three cards entered in the challenge.  The three chosen designers will get a special Sassy Cheryls blinky to proudly display on their blog.

 How cool is that!!!  There will also be the usual random drawing for a gift certificate so be sure to play along.
Remember to follow the challenge rules posted on the right side of the Challenge blog to insure that your card doesn't get rejected :(

Thanks for stopping by and we can't wait to see what you create for the challenge. 

Be sure to stop by the other DT members blogs and see what awesome creations they have for you.

Sassy Cheryl's has a bunch of new super cute images for you this week...

Happy Coloring

Amazing Cathy! I love those new flowers that you made and the others remind of of yo-yo flowers that I used to make when quilting. Another fantastic job!

Cathy-I love this card and the paper rose is perfect! I've made some myself but haven't put them on a card yet-you'd have to send the card in a box! Perfect for a hand delivered or for a shadow box card!
