{Distressed Holiday Wishes}

nov8
Hello friends! Today I am posting a card for this weeks CAS-ual Friday Challenge "Over the Edge".


   To create my card I used patterned paper from My Minds Eye. I love the rustic, distressed look of the paper! I stamped the sentiment on Offray twill ribbon using the PTI set "Photo Finishers". The pretty velvet ribbon is from the Noel Collection by Making Memories. I added a die cut swallow from A Muse Studio and a matching strip of paper underneath my ribbon. To finish off my card I used my corner rounder on all four corners. I love this simple card, and think it is very "Tim Holtze'ish"..lol  Not my usual style but pretty nonetheless.  I hope that you have a great day and thank you for visiting my blog today!
 
  Today I am also playing along with these challenges:

Shivers. This is breathtaking! Seriously beautiful. I love the moodiness of the colors and the distressed tones. That swallow is to die for and that ribbon. Scrumptious! Wonderful card all round. So inspiring!
