Critter Sketch Challenge #48 - Distressing & Circles!!

Today marks Critter Sketch Challenge #48 and we are asking you to use a technique on your card:  DISTRESSING!  We are also asking to see a circle/circles somewhere on your creation.  This can be buttons, brads, your image anything you like as long as we can see it!   We are being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique for the whole month long so be sure you play along for your chance to win!  Not only can you enter our challenge but if you use a Stamping Boutique image you can enter their monthly contest here for a chance to win some free digi images!

Here's my card:
I used The Stamping Boutique Image Butterfly but I was searching their store & couldn't find the image to link to.  I hope it's still available for you, it's so pretty!  I coloured the image with copics and cut the image out using my circle nesties.  I inked the edges and mounted on a scallop circle nestie that I had cut from Coredinations cardstock and sanded the edges.  The DP on the card that is peeking out is by Basic Grey and the corners of the card have more coredinations cardstock embossed with my circle embossing folder on my cuttlebug and sanded down to show through.  I also roughed up the edges of the card with a distressing tool from my Making Memories kit.  Lastly I added some circle dew drops to the body of the butterfly.

Hope you have a great Monday!  Be sure to check out the Critter Sketch Blog to see more of the wonderful DT creations!

I love the soft colors of this card Crystal. That butterfly is really pretty too. That's crazy your BFF has my name!!! I can't believe how many of us there are. There was a girl back home that had the same name and birthday and went to my doctor. We used to get bills for each other on occasion, although I never met her. Crazy! Tell your Jen hi for me.
