A Little Dirt Never Hurt

I had THE MOST FUN making this card! It was great to just toss things around and rip and tear and get dirty.

The Scrappy Saturday challenge at Wee Memories is Simply Sentiment. The sentiment is too be the focus of your creation.

I didn't really know what I was going to do for this one so I followed along on the hop and got some inspiration to make a thank you card with all the thank you stamps I have. As I was digging in my stamp drawer my Unity Stamp Company Little Boy set caught my eye. Then I saw the sentiment "A Little Dirt Never Hurt" and a stack of brown scraps. That's when my creative light bulb when off and I started tearing and distressing and inking and this is what I ended up with (along with brown fingers).

Most of this card is made with scraps. The stripe came from DCWV Baby Boy stack and the dots came from ki Memories pack. I used Distress Ink in tea dye and Color Box chalk ink in chocolate.
