A bit distressed?

No, not me! It's the challenge this week at CATCH THE BUG!
DISTRESSED/SHABBY CHIC
So which Bugaboo image have I chosen for this week? Well it's not the Stocking Santa this time, it's just simply Santa with a Sack.


The card was scrunched up to really distress it and then I used distress inks to highlight it and make it looked aged.


I stamped some Argyle Papertrey stamps onto the card but stamped away a little first so as not to get a good print. I wanted it to be faded in parts to give it more of a distressed look.



Also entering this card into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter ~ Christmas is Coming     Joyful Stamper ~ Anything Goes
ABC Christmas ~ Presents (In Santa's Sack)     Fab N Funky ~ Christmas
