I think this week's Fusion Card Challenge is perfect for a little distressing.
I was inspired by the colors, theme and shape of the door. It felt a little *Americana* to me, so I started with Crafter's Companion Starry Eyed Embossing folder on Core'dinations Kraft-Core Nostalgic collection that I sanded with a sanding block to bring out the design.
Unity Stamp Company's Hope builds Courage once in red & again in brown for the accent banner, that I attached with foam tape. I liked how the word hope repeated in the inspiration image, so I added a few more text stickers to finish the design.
