Distressed spelled backwards... Desserts Id.
heehee! Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome to another day of TGF obsession for me. ;) This card was made for the current "Distressing" theme over at Farm Fresh Challenge Blog, The Greeting Farm's new hot spot for all their challenges. My starting point was that awesome tag from my son's new cargo shorts - isn't it so boy-ishly cool? I used Jeremy from the Roll Call kit, my Heidi Swapp tool to tear up the edges, hand doodled some stitching, then added a black flourish rub on since that space looked a bit empty. I wanted a tab for the sentiment but didn't have the right size, so I used a little nestie and folded it in half. Those little copper brads finished off my rugged look. :0)
Here are some fun challenges that I am entering him into:

Papercraft Star: Recycle {clothing tag and rope}
Try It On Tuesday: Upcycling {clothing tag and rope}
Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog: Chocolate {colors}
Sugar Creek Hollow: Monochromatic
Fussy and Fancy Friday: A card for a child
Drunken Stampers: No technology (haha! I loved this theme - all elements were hand drawn/torn/rubbed on)

Thank you so much for coming by today, it's almost the weekend!

♥ & Aloha,
