Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Distressing

This week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge theme has been set by Suzie, and she has chosen:

'Distressing'

I love to distress...so this wasn't really a 'challenge'. The image I've used is 'Wee & Reindeer' by Whiff of Joy, and the papers are from the 'Eskimo Kisses' pad by BasicGrey (available here at the Secret Crafter). I used my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystals' die to cut the large snowflake. I distressed all of the papers with inks and my distressing tool, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug, and a white gel pen (available here at the Secret Crafter).


I'm also entering this card into a couple of other challenges:
For more inspiration for my lovely DT buddies, and our guest designer for October, Kate, please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
