Cuttlebug Challenge #16

A "distressed card" was the remit this week. Not something I do!

BUT, nothing ventured - nothing gained, SO ........here is my take.

The flower I made using handmade paper which I cut with nesties
and embossed with the textile pattern. The centre panel is embossed on core c/s, embossed with Frills border and distressed line folder
then sanded.

Cuttlebug folders: Textile, Distressed lines,Frills flowerborder, Nestie scallop and circle.

Thanks for stopping by, your comments are
always welcome.
