Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Distress It

This week on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge our challenge was to Distress our item via any means it, sand it, crumple it, wrinkle it...what a fun fun challenge!

Our sponsors this week are
My Favorite Things (who graciously donated the DT's stamps for the project)
Prize: $25 Gift Certificate
Prize: 4 Digital Images
My card this week card this week uses an image from a line called Pure Innocence, the stamp is called "Are we there yet" which can be found at My Favorite Things. I just adore this line...I love the adorable, yet simple images in this line.
For my distressing I decided to ink my edges of the card, of the flourishes, and I also decided to distress the white cardstock by sanding and piercing.... giving it a more aged look. I also decided to pull out my colored pencils and Gamsol and color this little gal in, although I did use Copics for her skin. This was such a fun little card to put together...thanks for joining me today, I can't wait to see what you come up with!
