Here is the card I would like to share with you today:

I stamped the dp in the background with the new Grunge Elements set and distressed the edges of it as well.  I then die cut and stamped the ink and the hand and adhered them to my banner with the sentiment.  The dp is from the Peaceful collection from Authentique.  I really like how the script dp and the postage dp coordinated with this fun new set.

 Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.

I love your design today Janette. You've incorporated vintage and grunge beautifully with the featured stamp set. I was doing some reading this month on grunge - very interesting article. The subtle design, torn edges, monochromatic pallet - all make your card a stand out piece!!
