Smeared & Smudged January Blog Hop

Welcome to the Smeared & Smudged January Blog Hop. The challenge is to create something that is rip, torn and folded!

 Blog Roll

I created a pocket card for the January Blog Hop. I used two Smeared Ink digital stamps from the Heart Wings collection for my winged heart. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Stampers Anonymous. I don't know about anyone else, but I had a hard time trying to create something that was ripped, torn and folded, lol!
The card is embellished with a strip torn from an old book, lace hearts, two metal washers and a silver pearl. The card was looking way too pretty so I liberally swiped it with a brown stamp pad.

Please hop over to Lady B's site to see what she has ripped, torn and folded for our amusement.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Smudgy Antics - pocket
Corrosive Challenge - #165 out with the old (everything used)
