Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #282 - Distress It!

Hello, hello, helloooooo!!!
I'm so happy it's the weekend - how about you?

It's time for another Saturday challenge at

Our hostess for Challenge #282 is Tracy and she would like
to see us do some distressing - inking, tearing, or both.
Distressing isn't my "go to" style but I really love to do it
once in a while.  I find it quite fun to rough up and ink
the edges of the papers.  On this particular card I took it a step
further and did a little bit of tearing as I've seen Tracy do so
fabulously.  I might have gotten a wee bit carried away with
that part - but it sure was fun and I do like how it turned out.
Take a look:
The stamp and sentiment are from the Ah-dor-Ahh-ble set
called "Wild About You".  It's definitely one of my favorite
animal stamp sets by far.  The papers came out my older 
stash and I punched, then scrunched the flowers to add to this card.
I used Tim Holtz Ranger distress ink around all the edges of the papers. 

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Creative Knockouts #28 - Tic Tac Toe 
(I used first column - stamped image, distressing and flowers)
The Corrosive Challenge Blog #225 - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday
Simon Says Wednesday Challenges - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant Challenge #300 - Anything Goes

There are lots of other awesome creations from the Krafty Girls and guests
to see for the KK Challenge #282 Theme of  "Distress it". I hope you will
go visit my lovely krafty sisters and then decide to join us this week too.
Remember your creation can use any stamp, product or project as long as
 you follow the theme.  You will have until June 5th at 11:55 pm EST
 to get your entries in! You could WIN $10 to spend in the KK shop
(your chances are doubled if you use a KK stamp). Wouldn't that be great?!

Shhh.... can you keep a secret??? I hope not 'cause this is one you might want to
share with your friends.  The Frugal Friday specials are up and there are some
really awesome stamp sets on sales!!! These deals are only good until
