Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #90 - Distressing!

 Before we get to this week's challenge (which is terrific btw) 
I have one or two things to tell you...

Kimmie has announced on the KKS Blog that we have two
new Krafty Girls to corrupt...Woops!! I mean welcome!! The
first is the very talented Nicole Aspinall from Adelaide, Australia,
 which is like 45 minutes away from me so this makes me VERY
happy!! I love the thought of having a KG so close!!! And the
second is no stranger to the KKS world...welcome also, the amazing 
and gorgeous Pam Varnell, who doesn't live so close, but this makes
me VERY happy also!! Please go and have a peak at their amazing
work and say hello!!!

 Second big thing is that Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring
Jen Del Munro's August SFYTT!!! COOL!! I love Jen's
sketches and I do try to participate every month....SO this
is the August sketch....Oh and I almost forgot...This week's
challenge hostess is Melanie and she would like you to use
"DISTRESSING" on your card!!! Another COOL

 This is my card....

 I ran out of time this week to colour up an image so I sort
of cheated and used one of Kimmie's amazing quotes by Lucille Ball
from Krafty Quotes #1. I am actually glad I did cause I really like
how this card turned out ....I LOVE distressing things...Thanks Mel!!

The papers are from MME's Lost and Found collection. This 
particular 6x6 paper pad is called "Union Square"... I love black
and red together. I distressed around the edges of the paper using
my Heidi Swapp edge distresser, which I have had for ages and
then using my Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink made it look a
little more grungier... The butterfly punch is from Martha and the
lace is from my favourite scrapbooking store in Adelaide...

 I don't know if you can see them but I put a line of pearls along
the top of the lace... It really does look better in RL!!

 I finished off the card by using "Sending You Smiles" from
Kimmie's Everyday Sentiment Set and punched out another

Now, please don't forget about Kimmie's
