Glitzy & Grunged Out Hardwood Ampersand

Hello again ~
I love Tuesdays, mainly because I am usually off. When I have a day off, I usually have a bit of time to craft a bit - and clean, although I like the crafting much more! I had the chance to play around a bit with the new 'Ampersand' textured impressions embossing folder - I decided to see how it would look with the 'Hardwood' stamp applied to it after I embossed it. I was hoping for a distressed look...
I am a big fan of antique shopping, to be able to find a unique treasure that is one of a kind is a lot more likely in an antique store than say the Brick?! When coming up with the idea for this card I thought I'd like to mimick an old chest that I saw in an antique shop a while back...
I used 'soft sky' cardstock and 'soft suede' to get the look I was after. I sponged the edges and ripped the bottom to give it more of a grungy feel! I used the "you can never have too much happy" from the 'Yippee Skippee' stamp set...
I love this set, so many cute greetings - many of them could be used for different occasions than the obvious ones too which is great! I added a bit of glitz and sparkle with the new 'gold baker's twine' and some gold sequin trim.
Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:
Gold baker's twine' [132975 - $3.95]
Gold sequin trim [132983 - $6.50]
Yippee Skippee [wood: 131341 - $22.95; clear: 131344 - $17.95]

I really like how this card turned out rustic, yet modern! Happy Stamping :)
