I hope you have had a good week - the weekend always flies by quicker than any other days - but with the weekend comes the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.

This weeks challenge is hosted by the lovely Peggysue,

 "The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom."
Matthew 27:51

Peggysue has challenged us to use torn paper technique (just tear paper with your fingers and use it somehow on your card, but it must be torn, not cut)

I have stamped a Tim Holtz image onto kraft card and cut it out using the A2 Matting Basics A Nestabilities, that has been layered onto the A2 Fancy Postage Edges Nestabilities.  The Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur


The sentiment is from a retired Layers of Color set designed by NinaB Designs

My torn strip has been sponged and added down the left hand side of the card - I love using tearing on cards and should do it more often!

Thank you to our sponsor
