Sir Stampalot is ALL DISTRESSED!

hi everyone and welcome to another lovely challenge over at Sir Stampalot where we are ALL DISTRESSED. I am not really into distressed, feel I never get it quite right but I am pleased with this card. I used old papers from my stash, think they are basic grey, the image is from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers. I cut the flower using Tim Holtz sizzix flowers out of an old dictionary and layered up with a brass embellie and a brad. They have been inked with distress inks along with the image, which I tore round the edges. I added some white stitching to the card to make it stand out a little bit better. The sentiments are all from my stash.
Well I hope you all get time to join the challenge this week, bet you will when you see the prize!
