Good Read!!

Yeah, it's Sunday and that means the dt at Dream Valley Challenges are showing off the delightful cards they have created for this week's "Distressing" Challenge.  The sponsors for this week are OSCC and Digi Doodle Shop.  My card features "Boy & Dog" from DDS and is colored with Copics (all E's except for one lonely YG and three W's ).  I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One to cut and mount the image, distressing the edges with Tim Holtz distress tool and brown ink.  The dp is from Basic Grey's Basic Kraft paper pad, sentiments are from Whimsy and all the embellishments are from my stash.  Every paper edge, plus the twill and ticket sentiments were all distressed with brown ink.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Card Cupids - Buttons and/or Ribbon
Corrosive Challenges - #128 Earth Tones
Glitter Geeks - Furry & Feathered Friends
Just Add Ink - JAI 79 Add Tearing/Distressing
Stamp Something - Use a Digi
