I'm distressed!

Not really! Well, my card is though! LOL! This weeks CAS challenge at SCS was to distress and I had such a hard time with that! Cause I really don't do either very well, CAS and distressing on cards, but I gave it an attempt, here it is:


This stamp is from one of the stamp sets I received for winning that Stamp It! challenge, its from Lizzie Anne Designs (think I spelt it wrong on the card, ss!)
I also used the new technique video at Stamp TV today, Emboss Resist. What a fun technique that is! And then I used the colors from this weeks Color Throwdown...see I'm not the only one into pink and greens right now, lol! I will probably do another card using this technique, I really enjoyed doing it, but as with all CAS cards, I always want to add more, them pearls snuck in there...lol.

Hope you are having a wonderful Hump Day! On the down hill swing now for the week! yay! Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty, Cat! I like the three pearls at the top corner in the graduated sizes, and that pink twill is yummy and perfectly distressed! Great card! Thanks for playing the Throwdown!

I think it is wonderful, Cat! I was tempted by this challenge, but in the end, I chickened out. LOL.
