Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Friday 16 August 2013 - Tear it to pieces

It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog.  The topic this fortnight is "tear it to pieces" ie torn edges.  It is time for Team B to show you their cards/creations.
Although I am in Team A I decided to make a card for this challenge as I like tearing.  I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching-Chou Kuik called Scarlett Holly.  She is available as a digital image, a single rubber stamp and on a plate of 4 images (Sheet 51, Plate 243 - the images on this sheet along with Scarlett Holly are Little Green, Frost Twinkle and Red Rose).  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Pan Pastels.  I have torn around the edge of the image and accentuated the torn edge with a green chalk ink pad.
The backing papers I have used area Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Traditions and Simply Dots.  These papers I have torn the edges of along with the mount for the image.  I also got a piece of plain white card and stamped with some Artylicious Christmas stamps and then inked the edges with the same green chalk ink pad.  I have finished the card off with some ribbon, Marianne Designs die-cut holly, stamped sentiment and some card candi.  I have kept this card relatively flat as it is costing so much more for posting cards.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
