Grungy Thursday!!

I seem to be getting later and later with my entries for
Grungy Monday!
I must admit I struggled a bit this week, Tim's instructions were clear enough but I just couldn't get to grips with it. I did try and make something on monday but it went in the bin!
Luckily my crafty chum Alison was on hand yesterday via skype to inspire me on and we both managed to get our pieces finished.
Here is my offering...
I used a mix of retro grunge paper and TSS metal, along with the Papillon stamp set and an MS butterfly punch. I adorned it with a grunge rose, some trinket pins and a sari ribbon with dangle.
Thank you Ali for the motivation.. Wonder what we'll get done today!
