Tear it to pieces

'Tear it to pieces' is the theme for today's new challenge on the Sweet pea stampers blog. Please click on the link to see the amazing designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to get tearing and join in our challenge.

This is my design card using Joanne Schempp's Mercedes stamp, inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens. I then tore round the image and distressed with salty ocean DI. The two papers used underneath were from my scraps box - I tore the edges and added a piece of ribbon to the striped BG cupcake snippet.

This is also for:
