Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #91

Here's my take on the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #91 this week. Boy, did this card take me some time to finish, but I'm pretty pleased with the results. Note to self: Burlap is NOT the easiest thing to work with for card making!! BIG SURPRISE!! LOL!!! I used folded paper as one of the elements from the sketch, and this card has lots of distressing to give it that authentic "Country" feel. While it was a lot of work, if I'm totally honest, it was a lot of fun to make, too.

I used Tim Holtz distress ink in Tea Dye for the edges of the image, and all of the paper came from a package of now retired Daisy D. paper. The image was printed digitally and colored with Copic markers. That about does it for this card. Simple, but then again... Not so much!! :) Below, you'll find all the info about this weeks challenge, and be sure to hop over to the Midnight Madness Challenge Blog to see what our talented designers have created for your inspiration.
