Your Next Stamp Challenge #12~Distressing!!!

Only 2 more days to enter my Hair Bow Gift Set Giveaway!!!  See THIS post!

Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!  We have a new Your Next Stamp Challenge going on for the next two weeks, and this time the fabulous Starlet Cabio has challenged us to use distressing on our cards/projects!  This is also for this week's A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge to make an Easter card.  I used this adorable YNS Fhiona's Easter Basket image once again.  I lightly distressed the edges of my paper with my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, and added some Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The dp is some retired SU Tea Party DSP, and the layout is this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  Make sure you check out the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog to see what the other Starlets created!  As always, we have 2 fabulous prizes for you to win:

1. Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by, will win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog!

2. Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by Cabio, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! [You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize].

I hope you're wearing GREEN today!  Have a good one ; )

Fhiona'a basket without Fhiona? Does she know you have her basket?? I really like that empty space of kraft at the top - that's so not you and I like! Really allows the little pearlies up there to stand out. You don't use kraft much come to think of it. I like different ;)
