Twisted Sketches #47 - Just Because

Hi everyone!

I'm back with my second post of the day.  For my Unscripted Sketches project, please scroll down. 

So, have I mentioned that I am totally in love with Anam's sketches?  If not, well I am.  If so, I'm saying it again. lol  They're so versatile, and the twists are always fun.  This weeks twist is: Distress - any how, any way.  For this weeks sketch challenge, click HERE.


There's a lot going on with this card, but I like it.  For the distressing part, I used my Tim Holtz distresser, and I also used some Core'dinations embossed paper that I sanded a bit so you could see the pattern in it better.  I also inked the Nestie under my sentiment, while it was still in the die.  I love how that turned out.  Embossing my cardstock before cutting it with a Nestie is a look that I like more and more each time I do it.  I added some MFT rolled flowers made out of cork, bling, twine and a couple of leaves and I was done.  I think this one will be a go to layout for cards for me.  I really like it.

Ready to be inspired?  Go check out what my fellow DT members have created for you today.  My card doesn't even compare to some of them posted.  They're just gorgeous!

Hugs!!
