GDT for Christmas Card Challenges

Hello there - good morning to you lovelies out in blogland! I hope you are well and having a good weekend. Today sees the first of 4 Sundays of cards for me as a GDT member of the christmascardchallenges. Thanks for having me on board for January!

My brief for this week - and yours should you choose to take the challenge - is to rip it, tear it, sand it.

This is what I made:

I've used coordinations card stock and embossed it with a me to you folder then sanded to reveal the core colour. Then I've ripped and torn to create rough edges on my mat. The rest involves claritystamp verse and spellbinders dies plus two ribbons. 

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CHNCcraftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge: AG wihout santa
Willow Sketchiewillowsketchiechallenge: Anything goes
cardmaniacardmaniachallenges: winter wonderland
creative momentscreativemomentsbloggersnetwork: AG
Card crafters Circle:cardcrafterscircle No business like snow business.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you again soon - remember its the last day for my candy today - I'll draw a winner on Monday 7th at around midday!

Hugs one and all!

Rachel xx
