Card Patterns Sketch 96

We're finally starting to thaw out here in North Carolina!  By New Year's Day, our temperatures may hit 60 degrees!  That will be quite a change from the snow and ice of last weekend.
I have a card to share today.  I made it for two challenges - this week's Card Patterns Sketch #96 and the StampTV Top Ten Episodes of 2010 - Distressed Newsprint

Here is the Card Patterns Sketch:

And here is my card:

I created the distressed newsprint background by wrinkling a piece of patterned paper from the 7 gypsies Conservatory pad and ink distressing it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Broken China, Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo).  The label is from Gina K. Designs Lovely Label 2 set and it was cut out with a Spellbinders Labels Fifteen die.  The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Inside & Out set.  I added some stitched ribbon and a few bronze adhesive pearls to finish my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
