Cute Card Thursday and Bugaboo

Today over at Bugaboo we are Sponsoring Cute Card Thursday: And I'm Playin.
Cute Card Thursday has some great Challenges  every week and today's is a great one.
So head over to the Cute Card Challenge Blog and Check Out the great examples by the Design Team and get busy and enter the Challenge yourself. You have a chance to win some Bugaboo Stamps.
So the Challenge today is Oh, So Distressing. Well that means you should show off a Distressing Technique or two or three. Whatever you like. I myself went all out, as usual. So first off here is my card and then I'll give you a list.
First off I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Tim Holtz) to distress the outer edges of the card base.
Next is a piece of vintage type that has the edges distressed using a handy Distressing tool (Stampin Up') and the Vintage Photo ink around the torn edges. For the Sentiment (7 Gypsies) I stamped it on a piece of white card stock and then did my smooch and lift technique using Vintage Photo ink . Same with the little hand at the bottom. The strip on the left hand side is a piece of Kraft Card stock that has been run through the Big Shot with one of my oldest and fave Embossing Folders. Edges are Distressed, inked and then I rubbed Vintage Photo Ink over the top and sprinkled water on it to give it a vintage feel. The Image, Stella Birthday-One More Candle was colored with Copics and Snow Pen and Stickles added to her hair and the outside edges distressed with Vintage Photo Ink.

The piece of green velveteen is distressed and embossed but unfortunately it doesn't show up very well.
I hope you all join in this week and Have a Great Day.
