Spoon Full of Sugar - Distressing

This week things are Distressing at A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge!!

I love doing this, but man I make one heck of a mess. I try to stay neat - work over my trash can, but somehow I end up with paper all over me, the floor and the desk. Here is my card this week, I used Stampavie's Laurence Collections "Merry Bear" - I just her bears!! I colored with my Copics and then used stickles on the presents "ribbon"... I think it looks more like garland now - LOL
I then cut the image out with my new EK Success Circle Cutter - OH MAN I LOVE THIS THING!!! I have had the old green circle cutter forever, but with my 40% coupon last week I got the new one, and Wow did they improve it! Not only are the measurements printed on it so you can cut he exact size you need, but the tool works like a hot knive in butter! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Then I matted it with a Spellbinders Nestie - Lacey Circles.
The pattern papers are Basic Grey Jovail collection. These are just gorgeous  - love the black and red. I Distressed the edges of all the papers with my Making Memories Distressing tool. Basically a razor blade safely put in plastic. I then wrapped a red satin ribbon around the middle and tied a bow. The sentiment is a Micheal's Dollar stamp - punched out with the new EK Success tag punch edged with my red copic. A metal adhesive dot for decoration. Love the colors - Black and red is not a normal Christmas color combo - but I like it.

Now make sure to visit A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge and see all the distressed DT cards - then join us for some fun and a great prize.

Busy day today. I have to work part of the day, and Hubby is going to be home to work around the house. That means I have to help... sigh... :-)

Have a wonderful day!
HUGS and

Copics Used: C2, E31, E35, G94, R27, R46, R89, NO, N3, Y28, YG93, YG99, W3 and a blender pen.
