*UPDATE - My card has just been announced as a winner of the Sentimental Sundays challenge!! Woo!! Thanks so much to the team at Sentimental Sundays!*

Here's my entry for the Mojo Monday Challenge! I have used the Birthday Anya stamp from Craft-A-Lot again on this card. I felt that this stamp fit the layout nicely and it gave me an excuse to practice that hair again!

I played with a few different techniques on this card, namely the Tim Holtz Distress Inks which are a lot of fun. The pink circle behind Anya was created using the Antique Linen and Fired Brick Distress Inks. I used my blending tool to apply these to cardstock, flicked the paper with a paintbrush and some water, and ironed the cardstock for the final look. I also used the Fired Brick ink to distress the accent borders of the card.

 I have also used the Martha Stewart Edge-Punch Medallions around the edges of the patterned paper. I really like the distressed effect this gives. To add to this look, I lightly sanded the paper and edges. I saw this on a Tim Holtz tutorial and it just gives a really nice vintage touch.

Here is an image of this week's challenge over at Mojo Monday:
