Right, the reason this card came about is because the theme for Addicted to CAS this time is Distress. And boy oh boy, has that juxtaposition of CAS and Distress caused me some distress! My waste paper basket was gradually filling up with scrunched up failures. Stamping, embossing, layering.... nothing was working for me. Everything was more chaotic mess than elegant distress.
After several scrunches, I thought, "Hang on, perhaps I could use that scrunching to good effect" - and there and then, the little square of distressed newsprint in the middle of the card was born. And I dried my tears, die cut and embossed a butterfly, added a few pearls and was happy once more!
