New Delightful Challenge~ DISTRESSING

Hello Friends,
I'm so Excited i got my computer back!! :0) and just in time too, Today starts another great challenge at Delightful Challenges and this week it's DISTRESSING. I don't know about you but i just love the distress look on cards.
Today is also New Release Day at Digital Delights and we have our August Release available at the Digi Shop.
The image i was given to work with is Sparky the Knight, I just adore this image!! of coarse i just love anything medieval so this release is definately one of my favorites.
I used my top note die cut for the top of my card and the distressed stripes embossing folder for my mat. i then used some black chalk to went over the stripes to give them a little more distress look. I printed off two copies of Sparky. i colored certain parts of my image on both copies and cut out the pieces i wanted to give dimension to and added them to my main image with foam dots. The sentiment i used is also one of the newly released Knight sentiments available at the digi shop.
Challenges i entered Sparky into:
Dutch Dare~Anything Goes
Practical Scrappers~#1 favorite product (foam dots)
Scrap Creations~Anything goes
We have another fantastic sponsor for our challenge this week
and the prize is a $25 Gift Certificate with Free Shipping to the US and Canada

I sure hope you decide to join us this week at Delightful Challenges!! :0)
have a great week!!
