Simon Says......Distressing (& Tim Holtz)

This weeks theme at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is DISTRESSING!!!! The Design Team is showcasing Tim Holtz as well, because, well, he is the KING of DISTRESSING!!!! Truly a VERY talented man!!!

For this card I have used the Tim Holtz mini mask (Compass) on Creamy Caramel paper (SU). I have spritzed it with Sapphire blue Glimmer Mist. I distressed the edges of the papers with Walnut Distress ink. The "wheels" or "cogs" were in my chipboard stash so I sprayed them with Sapphire blue Glimmer mist as well to match! The twine just pulls it all together, I think & doesn't make it "girly"! LOL I got the mini mask and the glimmer mist at Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Go check it out..they have ALL THINGS TIM!!!! LOL

Inside it just says "Happy Birthday"...so a very masculine card for a guy birthday!

I really hope you will join us this week for our challenge!!! I KNOW how you ALL love to DISTRESS things!!!!! Can't wait to see what you create!!!!! AND don't forget, you can win a $25 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!! So, what are you waiting for?? Get DISTRESSING!!!!
(and have fun!)

What a great man card! I would be perfect for a man who owns a boat, it has a kind of maritime theme.
