Thrifty Thursday w/a Sketch!

GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to another "Thrifty Thursday!" Today we have a twist to go along w/our scraps! YEP, we challenged ourselves to use this sketch below that our very own "Miss Liz" created for us! We were ALL to use our scraps & make something using this sketch & I think it's safe to say that we ALL pulled it off! ;) 

Here is a picture of my scraps that I used for my card! 

Here is my card I made~! Let's just say that this card was "ALMOST" a tragedy BUT, I was able to salvage it! lol…… I basically added everything on to my card & thought it was too "white", so I decided to ink it up! WELL……I inked up the edges w/shabby shutters & peeled paint ink & it came out HORRIBLE :( Sooooo, I grabbed my mini mister & sprayed water onto the edges with out thinking that this was NOT watercolor paper! At this point I actually wanted to cry because I did NOT want to do this over! I used my heat gun & dried it but it was ALLL warpy.  After it was dried, it needed something ELSE, so that is when I grabbed my tattered rose ink pad & stamped my Script Type background onto my card in the top right side! Now, it was starting to come together so since the edges still were NOT pretty, I took my distressing tool & distressed the edges & just used glued it straight down onto the base of my card! PHEW, this was a labor of love! hehehehe! :)
