Gasoline Grunge for Girls?

I know I said that my Gasoline Grunge style was for guys, but I decided to make a grungy styled birthday card with a girls flair.  Are you wondering what Gasoline Grunge is?  Here is a link to the definition (don't worry I don't take myself too seriously).  

For this card I used a panel of Newsprint DSP for the background and for the focal point I made a dimensional flower from scraps of Love Letter DSP.  I punched the Love Letter scraps with the Scallop Circle Punch and the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Punch.  I spritzed all the pieces with water before I scrunched them all up.  A bright and glittery red brad holds all the pieces together.

A few other details to share with you...The blue ribbon is a piece of Levi's.  Yesterday I hemmed a bunch of pairs of pants for my husband.  The remnants were piled on my counter and I thought one of the strips might look cool on a card.  So, I attached one to my card with two mini red brads.  Last tidbit of information to tell is that the greeting was stamped twice on a strip of Woodsheet.  First I stamped the greeting with Pacific Point Classic Ink then I spritzed it with water.  When it was dry I stamped the greeting again with Jet Black Staz On (the must have black ink IMO).

I hope you like it.  Happy craftin, Elizabeth
