Distressed down under

Ok, post #2! Just the one card in this one, and I'm actually pretty happy with how this came out. I have used the sketch from Just Magnolia and played along with Magnolia Down Under's theme of distressing. I was happy with the way the distressing came out on this card. I have tried a couple of techniques I read about as I do not have a distressing tool but they did not work for me, then someone said they just used scissors and I found that works great. I even frayed the ends of my lace and ribbon slightly do give a distressed look! I have also became a fan of sewing on cards, I have to thank the ladies at Anya Ink for starting me stitching with their last challenge, now that I have started I don't know if I can stop :)
