Merry Moments and Challenge 249

This is another card for the sketch challenge at Splitcoast this week. I stamped the image in SU Basic Brown using SU's Wandering Words from the new Mini Catalog. I sponged the edges with real red, but still wasn't happy with it. I distressed the edges and in the process one of the corners of the image bent. This presented another challenge - restamp or make do. I decided to make do and bent and fussed with it until the entire image appeared distressed. The image was mounted on Going Green and Real red. The designer paper is SU's Merry Moments and the ribbon is from last year at SU. It's very unusual for me to make a card without sparkle, so I added the three brads in the bottom right corner. Hope you like it!
