This card is made for the fun MMSC #4 challenge at: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/
Have been wanting to use my distressed background stamp for a bit and this is the perfect opportunity. And, I do love it. Stamped my image with embossing ink and added gold embossing tinsel. Framed with a glossy, gold ribbon-style tag after removing ends. Layered real gold ribbon (which I frayed) under the main image. Sponged and distressed. Couldn't find my distressing tool so used the outside of a Nestie and my scissors. Guess those gadgets are multi-purpose tools. LOL Added the flower which I wasn't sure was appropriate with this card but couldn't find anything else. A cross charm would have been nice. Stamped and distressed sentiment and I'm finished. It was a lot of fun!!
ONE HOUR LATER-I'm back to say I failed to put on a right corner piece except for my sentiment which isn't in the corner. PLEASE FORGIVE ME..I also notice my two diagonal ribbons under the main image aren't showing up very well. Don't let the challenge police come. I'm smiling.

OH, Brenda, this is lovely. Love that distressed look and that gold tinsel on the cross. I see the distressed ribbon pieces and they look fabulous! What a great job on this challenge and I don't think the challenge police will be coming after you on this one!! The flower looks fine too and appropriate. Great job Brenda! TFS!
