FWF-Frazzled Dream Bird!

Hello!  Today I have a card that I made for the "no patterned paper" challenge for Unity's WCMD challenge extravaganza!  I used stamps from Unity's August 2010 KOTM.  I inked my Birds & Swirls CB folder with white ink before running it through the CB.  I also filled in the depressed areas with a white gel pen, to make them stand out more.  I distressed the edges of the kraft panel and inked the edges of all the paper on my card with distress inks.  I added some ruffled satin ribbon to the bottom.
Here is another card for the distressing challenge.  This card was published in embellish magazine's premiere issue!  I think it has been long enough that I can share it on my blog now!

Thanks for looking!  Off to make some more challenge cards!
