So Sweet

The new challenge this week at Phindy's Friday challenges is to create a card with Distressing.  This wonderful image that Phindy created is called Nana Pies and I thought it would be perfect for this challenge and would make a great vintage style card.

We had a wonderful response to our last challenge and we are looking forward to having everyone back again this week.  Phindy will once again be offering an $8 gift certificate to her store as a prize for one randomly chosen winner.  Phindy's Design Team will choose one card each week as Card of the Week and the creator of that card will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot and will receive a 20% discount voucher to Phindy's store.

I am entering this card in the following challenges;

Fab 'n' Funky - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (Lace Optional)
