#3 - Most Distressing

Finally, I have managed to complete a DCM challenge on the day it came out! They're asking us to make a "distressed" card, i.e. to use some sanding, tearing, curling, inking, distress inks, that kind of thing:

My card is not too distressed, I've kept the colours quite cheerful ;-) Oh dear -moving on... I embossed some DCWV cardstock with a Cuttlebug folder and then sanded over the embossing to reveal some of the white core. I've also taken some paper flowers and curled the petals a little, and the handcut leaves have got some ink around the edges. Sentiment was cut with a QK Revolution die, ricrac came free with a mag, and brads and button are from stash. Thanks for stopping by!
