Charisma cardz #32–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you are having a great week so far.  Mine is going great (it helps not being in work of course) but it’s going too fast lol!  As it’s Thursday it means it’s time for a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz challenge and this week it’s time for Team Gem to share their work (which I’m part of).  As from last week the DT has a few new members and we’ve split into two teams – Team Carly and Team Gem – so that means I will only be posting a card once a fortnight now, although I will still be commenting every week.  Anyway enough rambling the theme this week is “distressed” and here is my card:

charisma cardz #32 - distressing

charisma cardz #32 - distressing (close up)

I received my new Go-Kreate XXL scalloped circle dies a few days ago and couldn’t wait to use them so made a circle card for a change.  I stupidly didn’t order the XXL plain circles (but I’ve rectified that now lol) so I used the scallops for all the layers, except the image which I cut out with my circle nestie.  The super cute image is from Some Odd Girl called ‘snuggle tiny Tia’ and the paper is basic grey from the ‘kioshi’ paper pad.  My distressing consists of inking every edge possible with a chalk ink pad.  I normally rough up all the edges with a scissors but as all the edges are scalloped I thought this would probably look a bit naff!!

We have two sponsors this week, firstly we have Some Odd Girl (who generously gave me my image) and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digis of their choice and our second sponsor is  The Stamping Boutique and they are offering one lucky winner 5 digis of their choice.

The rest of the design team have created amazing creations as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
