Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #37~Rip Something!


Hello!  I've had this super cute Lil' Lolita image~Lil' Christmas Lolita Evie~colored and sitting on my desk for the last couple of weeks, so I finally sat down and put her on a card:)  I decided to play along with this week's Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge which is Rip Something

I distressed the edges of my patterned paper, and tore the bottom of the music sheet dp all from the Echo Park Paper Co. Merry Christmas line.  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Signature Christmas.  I added a sprig of holly punched with a Punch A Bunch punch (say that 10 times LOL) and a button.  A pretty lace border, and some stitching, and it was complete!

I'm really looking forward to this weekend!  My daughter has her very first gymnastic competition!  She is on level 2 team this year, and has been doing really well!  She won first place all around during her mock meet a few weeks ago against her teammates (27 of them!) so hopefully she'll be able to do as well against some other gyms.  

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Friday!
