Distressed Thank You's @ The Perfect Sentiment

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

Before I get too far into today's post I would like to say that I owe many of you some blog love and commenting. I apologize for my absence. I was recovering from strep throat and I just took my last nasty antibiotic today! So I plan on catching up with my commenting and I thank you for being loyal followers and friends!! Big hugs to you all. 

It's time for a new challenge at The Perfect Sentiment!

The Challenge: create a card with a sentiment of Thank You

The Twist: use some form of distressing on your card...paper tearing, roughed-up edges, inking, crumpling, etc. 

I think I threw my Design Team for a loop when I issued them this challenge! LOL
I however, love to distress and ink and quite frankly, if you see a card without those techniques you can rest assured it's not mine. I just feel like something is missing if I don't.

We are blessed (and I don't use that term lightly as it's really hard to get sponsors when you are still a fairly new challenge blog) to have a wonderful new sponsor this week...

Stitchy Bear will award one random winner a $10 Gift Voucher! Do they ROCK or what?

They also provided us with images to work with. I used the Shaded Flower.

I distressed the edges of all my papers. Then I inked the base of the card with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I used Crumb Cake seam binding for my ribbon and bow. My image is colored with copics which I am still learning how to work with. My sentiment is from the fabulous Verve set "Words Cannot Express".

You must stop by and visit my fellow design team members to see what they did with this challenge:
