Today's card comes from my guest designer spot over at Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge.  I am completely delighted to be their guest this week - it is a fairly new challenge, but one that has everything I love !
Here is their sketch ...

and my distressed card ...

Everything is pretty torn up - as I was going for a shabby look.  I did some wet embossing on the edges of the dp, and used a couple of colors of mixed media ink.  I also used, for the sentiment, a small version of a digital from theHouseAcrosstheBay etsy shop, that fit beautifully with the design paper.
This is a sketch I know I will use again.  Stop by IBSIC this week, and join us for the fun !!
