Paper Play Distressing

This week at Paper Play it's team B turns to play. Our challenge is distressing. And... let me tell ya... distressing was stressing me up! :) I think in my head I always associated distressing with vintage and as much as I adore other people vintage style, it just not my style.

And on top of that my mojo decided to just go on vacation and leaving me stranded. I wasted 3 cards. Each time I felt like they looked too messy. At the end, my clean style won and I just stick to this simple card. I distress the image with distress inks and use SRM sticker for the sentiment.

Oldie But Goodie Challenge - Pink, Blue & Brown

The other DT gals did such fabulous works. Mine is the simplest one! Sorry, when mojo is  on vacation, it's ON VACATION! No trace of it left whatsoever. Hah! :) Check out the DT work at Paper Play Challenges.

Hope you have a great Thursday! :)

Lovely, simple card! Do you remember the name of the stamp you used for this? It looks like Lily of the Valley flowers and was wondering if it was from a set or a "stand-alone" stamp. Thank you!
