[DYSU] Challenge #60 - Distress

Hello there! I'm still dragging around like a little sick puppy. Turns out after the surgery I have been plagued by a very stubborn UTI. I'm on my fourth course of antibiotics, and they gave me the "good stuff." I'm currently feeling a little subpar, mainly super sleepy and dizzy due to the antibiotics. So Florian has been my personal chauffeur. He's been the best!

In the meantime, this week at DYSU we have the best challenge Distress. And a huge announcement to make: Digi Darla is giving *every participant* a coupon code for a free digi. All the more reason to participate right? :)

This week I'm showcasing a little bit of Bugaboo goodness.

Come Away With Me...
Stamps: (Silhouette Butterfly) Bugaboo Stamps; (Afternoon Tea; Afternoon Tea - Sentiments) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink; (Corrugated Card Stock - Kraft) RAK; (Chloe's Closet Collection) Making Memories
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 9 Spice Tin) Ranger

I had some printer woes, but Florian managed to print it off on his with a little bit of Adobe and email magic. Well, we pretty much hit the "buy" button on some new printer cartridges. I decided to back this little butterfly on some little corrugated card stock, trimmed it out, and used an X-acto knife to distress the edge.

Come Away With Me...

This pattern paper has been sitting in my stash for a while, and i decided it was perfect for this little bright, sweet card.

Seriously STUNNING card, Ren-Yi! LOVE the colours, the papers, the simple LO, that FAB sentiment, and of course that GORGEOUS butterfly! I've had some corrugated cardboard lying around and I think I need to pull that out and use it...looks FABULOUS!
