Grungy Wednesday!

OK so I know it's supposed to be Grungy Monday, but I just wasn't feeling it on monday!
And if i'm totally honest I wasn't feeling it when I made it yesterday either but I think thats just the way it goes sometimes.
Anywho.. Here it is, my offering for week 4's 'Texture Fades and Distress' challenge
I used the sunburst texture fade with spiced marmalade and barn door with a smidge of mustard seed over the top, Umbrella man is diecut from mountboard and than stamped with the text from the papillon set. The quote is one from the quotegarden that I printed out and then diecut using a small label's 8 nestie.
It's not really my usual sort of card which I think is why i'm not feelin it, but it may grow on me!
