Giving "Grunge" A Try (FMS97)

I have to admit when I saw the "Gorgeous Grunge" and "Tape It" sets in the new catalog, I went right on by.  Not my thing....I thought.  As usual, I saw so many adorable cards made with these sets that I had to give it a try.  I'm a very linear person so splats, drips and tears don't come easy.  However, I have to say this card came together pretty quickly.  I had to just get over myself. :)
One reason it came together quickly was because it's based on this week's Freshly Made Sketches #97.  Here is the sketch:
