Oooh I love a bit of distressing on a card don't you? I still use the edge of an old pair of scissors to do my paper distressing, but I am definitely going to put the Tim Holtz distressing gadget on my Christmas list this year.
This is another card to add to the box of cards I have been making for St Lukes Hospice (see the challenge blog here, why not join in it's for such a good cause) I have been using up some stamped images and this little Tilda has been left unloved in my craftroom for too long. I used Prima Pixie Glen papers and an old scrap of green paper for the embossing. I have only used this folder once before even though I have had it for years, I sanded over the embossing to distress it and I like the effect so I think I'll use it more often from now on. I finished off with some prima hydrangeas, a couple of punched butterflies and some moss green satin ribbon from the green Pretty Little Ribbon Pack.
I used a lot of stickles on all the distressed edges and on Tilda's wings but I don't think that shows up too well in the photo.
