Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #83 (and more)

Good afternoon!  Hope you are having a great day!  I'm popping in with a quick post to share a card I made for a few challenges.  First, it is for this week's Mo's DP2 Challenge #83 where the theme was "distressing".  My card is also for this week's Color Throwdown #142 - Black, Lime Green and Dark Gray.  Finally, I used Card Positioning Systems Sketch #218 for my layout.

Here are the CTD colors:

And here is the CPS sketch:

Here is my card for the three challenges:

I started with a card base of GKD heavy base weight white CS.  I used patterned papers from a retired Stampin' Up pack called Urban Oasis to bring in the CTD colors. The patterned papers are layered on SU Basic Gray CS.  I stitched around all the panels and distressed the edges with scissors.  My Mo's image is The Big Guy Golfing.  I colored him with Copic markers then distressed around the image panel with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.  I flipped the CPS sketch to vertical, then finished my card with 3 pewter brads from Making Memories. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to see you again soon!
