Distressing is not one of my favourite techniques - but I also don't like challenges to get the better of me! So I gave this a go:
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Distressing
Penny's Paper - BINGO (Bow, Pearls, Ribbon)
I have used a paper from MME for the background. The image is from Digi Stamps 4 Joy and the sentiment from Create with TLC. I die-cut both of these using Spellbinder circle dies and then distressed the edges with Distress Ink. I also distressed the edges of the card with the same ink. I have added a satin ribbon and bow plus some olive green pearls.
