We Grow Great.....and dirty!!

Well, one of the challenges for the Dare to get Dirty week was from my fellow Little Paper Shop designer, Laura!!

So I absolutely had to rise to the challenge which was to:

"I challenge you to rip and tear, distress your paper and make it down right dirty!"

Well, I think I succeeded in that - although I am wondering if my card just looks dirty! instead of distressed and dirty LOL!!

I used black soot distress inkpad by Ranger for my stamping and sponging.

I took out my frustrations by distressing all the papers used in this card, with my Heidi Swapp distressing tool!

The image is from Cornish Heritage Farms Kim Hughes line Nature's Silhouettes. I stamped it off a couple of times and also restamped with SU! white craft ink.

Then I stamped the CHF Spanish Script backgrounder overtop lightly in Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush.

Cardstock base is Memory Box licorice, pink is Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush cardstock and the tag is one I had just laying around!!

The sentiment is from CHF Motivational Centers - I love using those stamps - it makes me feel good all over!!!

I added a Prima flower tied with a couple of ribbons and added it to the tag.

For a final touch I added some Stamping Bella pink baubles to the stamped image - FUN!!

This card also fits the sewing challenge by Julia and the silhouette challenge from Joan - YAY!!
