Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #299 with MHK Designs

 Happy Birthday, Asha!

This week we are celebrating the birthday of one of our talented Tuesday Throwdown Challenge teammates by joining with MHK Designs, where Asha is also on the design team, for a surprise blog hop!
At least we are hoping it's a surprise!

Here is my contribution to the hop 
 (You'll find a link to your next stop near the bottom of this post.)

and inspiration for this week's challenge, 
a pop up card,
using the Eat Your Cake digi set from MHK Designs.

Fully opened card forms it's own box for display.

(The back of the center section is blank to write a personal message.)

Dawn Griffith has a wonderful tutorial for this type of card on You Tube.  The papers are from CTMH.  The bow is a Tattered Lace die cut.  The stitched circle is a La La Land Die Cut.  
And all the edges have been distressed using a sponge dauber.

Which leads me to this week's challenge at 
Tuesday Throwdown
where the theme is Distressing.  
The digital images Team B used were provided to us by MHK Designs, this week's sponsor.   They have a nice variety of digital vintage and modern sentiments and images, as well as, digital papers. 
You can check out their Etsy store here.

I've used the Digital Set, I Wheely Like You, for this card.
(The computer generated sentiments are not from the set.)

I hope you'll join us for this week's  
Tuesday Throwdown challenge.

Now it's time to continue hopping.
