Fabulous cards ladies. Thank you for sharing.

Here's my card:

I heat embossed a buck stamp by TPC Company onto canvas and used distress stains and ink to create a resist. I took it one step further and sprayed it with water to get the fun texture look. The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts that I stamped in Hero Arts black ink onto this Recollections cardstock. The black cardstock behind it is also by Recollections. The letter U is sort of an eyelet by All My Memories Circa 2003. The circle around it is Stampin Up cardstock and Creative Memories punches. The gridline paper is unknown but the patterned paper to the left is by Studio Calico. I matted that patterned paper onto Bazzill cardstock. 

Thanks for looking.
