Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge Week #42 - Distressing

This week's challenge at Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge Blog is Distressing. Here is one of the samples I made up for our Charity Stamping Pyjama Party last weekend.

I had been wanting to play with these fun "see thru" cards for awhile now, so I ordered some up from CTMH with my last order and played a bit. I do like the effect, but you do have to really do some planning in order to cover your work. I distressed around the edges a bit to help the white circle pop a little. I like the look of the layers circles better, in retrospect, I probably should have done the same on the front, but it was too late, oh well!

I also played with some CTMH glitter rub-ons I've had for awhile.

And here is the back.
Hope you are able to join us this week! Can't wait to see what you have to share!
Sorry to say that I will not be lurking around blog land much (if at all) this week as I am heading to the Muskokas for a conference and then to London, ON for the weekend to attend Kraftin Kimmie Day! I will have lots of catching up to do when I'm back! I'm looking forward to it, but I NEVER enjoy the packing/unpacking part and this time I am packing for work and play - how on earth will I fit it all in one suitcase?!? I hope you all have a lovely week!

What I used:
stamps: I Believe (C1427) and Father Christmas
