Gorgeous Grunge Meets Woodgrain

Hi there my Stampin' friends! 
Where did the last 2 weeks go?  I can't believe it has been THAT long since I have posted something!  Thank you for being dedicated and for checking in!  I have been kept busy with lots of stamping events, I will post more on that later.
I have a great card to share with you today - it was created with 2 challenges in mind!  And there are SO many things I like about this card!  I am participating in The Paper Players Challenge 171 and The Friday Mashup! FM135!
Do you have the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set yet?  Well, this is one you will need in your collection!  It is awesome for scrapbooking and card making alike. 
Here is my card......
There are a lot of things going on here!  There is bigshotting, dry embossing, stamping and sponging!
I have been waiting for just the right opportunity to use the Core'dinations cardstock.  One word - AWESOME!  I ran it through the bigshot with my Woodgrain Embossing Folder and  the work was done for me.  Love this! 
I stamped with Gorgeous Grunge on the Vey Vanilla layer as well as used the Yippie-Skippie! Stampset for the greeting.  I sponged using Early Espresso on the edges of the leaves and the greeting.
Here are all of the products I used...

BTW, you still have word verification turned on, which makes it challenging to leave comments! If you need to know how to disable it, just email me or one of the players!
