Distressing Challenge

This week's challenge is to add some distressing to your project and be sure to tell us how you used distressing!

Our guest designer Susie Rostad created this beautiful card:

And here's the artwork from the rest of the design team:
We hope you'll find some wonderful ideas here - and please share your creations with us! Don't forget to include CTMH products.  Get crafty, post your creation online, and then copy and paste your direct URL into Mr. Linky, below.


As a reminder here are the updated rules/guidelines for our challenges:

* All links must be to artwork that fits the challenge for the week and contain Close To My Heart products. If it does not include CTMH products, the link will be removed.

* All links must be directly to the specific post with the artwork for the challenge. To do this, compose your post, publish it and then click the title of the post. This should take you to a page that has only that one post on it. This is the page we need a link to - not to your whole blog. If the link sends us to your entire blog, your link will be removed.

* Your blog post MUST mention that you are entering the challenge at H2H and link to our site. If you don't mention H2H in your post, your link may be removed.

* Please consider turning OFF word verification for your comments as it makes it much more time consuming for our DT members to leave you comments.
