A Sketched Thanks and Clean & Simply Distressed

Here is my card for today's color challenge on Split Coast as well as last weeks Doubledog Dare Challenge from Anne (Itsapassion) to use scrapbook sketch SBSC#31 and to include a fashion accessory - The fan is my accessory! The stamps are Hero Arts and Amuse. We'd love to have you join in on our Double Dare Challenges - just post your card on Split Coast and use keyword DDC.

You can see all the Doubledog Dare Challenge cards here.

And this is my clean and simple card using distressing and sponging for this weeks CAS challenge on Split Coast. My card is 3.5 x 3.5. I distressed the edges of the designer paper and sponged the edges of the card and the designer paper. I stamped the sentiment by Verve Stamps directly on the designer paper. Clean and simple! (well maybe it should be dirty and simple!?!)

Off to eat a quick supper and work on some more stamping projects! thanks for dropping by!
