Creative Inspirations - My First DT Card - Challenge #53 Distressing

I am so excited to be a part of the Creative Inspiration Challenge Blog. The Design Team is full of some very talented ladies, I was so excited when I found out the news that I was now a part of the team. This is my first card as a DT member. This week, it was Cor's Challenge and she decided that distressing would be her theme. Something I must admit I haven't done in quite a long time. So I took out my trusty distressing tool and distressed along the edges. Our sponsors this week are Simon Says and Stichy Bear Stamps, so why not play along and don't worry, if you don't have a distressing tool to distress your edges, your fingernail, sandpaper or nail file will work just fine, so come on girls get creative and play along.

I used NY Socialite which is a stamp that I neglected for quite too long. It was one of first stamps that I purchased when I began making cards a few years ago.

I distressed the edges both inside and out:

A Close Up:

Stamp: NY Socialite by: Stamp Happens

Paper: Stuff from my stash, & Basic Black
Copies: E02,E00,E000,R00,R83,R85,C1,C3,C5,C7,C9
