Combo card...

(again I am stretching for titles here!)...but this is essentially a card that is a combination of two challenges out there...the first is a sketch by Mercy Kerin (MTSC40).  I love the sketch and wasn't sure what to do with it for awhile...but then...I was surfing the web and came across this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge - Distressing...so I figured why not combine the two???  It gave me an excuse to pull out some stamps I haven't used in awhile.  I've noticed that a lot of times when I do distressing I combine it with some heavy vintagey stuffs...and my color pallette tends to get a little muted...but every so often I figure going that way opens me up to some more colors!  So after today's Black and White and now this card...bold and bright for a day or two!  LOL!

Supplies:  Paper - K&Co: Life's Journey; Cardstock: CTMH, Bazzil; Stamps - Stampers Anonymous: TIm Holtz Mini Muse; Ink - Distress Inks: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo; Lace trim - unknown
