Magnolia Down Under Challenge #25 Distressing / Magnolia-licious Clean & Simple


I was able to get this card done for 2 challenges. Magnolia Down Under this week is asking for distressed looking cards, and Magnolia-licious wants clean and simple cards. This little Tilda is from the Halloween collection from Magnolia, and I'm sure is supposed to be a little witch. To me she looks like Cinderella, tired and weery taking a break from cleaning the floor after those evil stepsisters. LOL. I distressed around the card with my sandpaper but it didn't show too much, so I distressed the image with Tea dyed Distressed Ink. I kept it simple for Manolia-licious by not adding too many layers, and boy was it hard holding off on the embellishments. The flowers, the buttons, the brads, the charms, the withdrawl. Thank goodness this is only for one week. LOL. Hope you like my Cute and Simple Distressed Card.
Hugs xx

Loving this simple and adorable card! Tilda is so pretty. You have done a great job with the distressed look! It must have been hard to hold off on all your lovely embellishments! You did great girl..I'm struggling with the distress challenge! I'm going to try and give it a go!
