Sow Seeds of Kindness Everyday - FFFC #203 'Distress It'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

We have a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge--it's our first one of the new year.  (Hope you've all enjoyed a marvelous holiday season by the way.)  The theme for our new challenge is 'Distress It!'  Don't forget to hop over to the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog to get details on the challenge and to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us. 

Here's what I've created as my DT card.



I love doing cards with distressed paper edges, but I only do them once in a while because it's time consuming distressing those edge...hee hee.  But I sure like the look of them!

A closure look at the image being featured.


This adorable girl is a digital image called Flora and she's available from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I've coloured her using alcohol-ink based markers and some colouring pencils.
