Let's get distressed

It's time for another new challenge over at The Crafty Purple Frog and it's one of my favourites this time - LET'S GET DISTRESSED.  I have used the gorgeous image The love is gone and of course I chose the decoupage option

I decided to make a scalloped circle shaped card for a change and have distressed the edges of the papers and card stock.  The ribbon is white American Seam Binding that has been scrunched up to add to the distressed feel.

I punched some flowers and scrunched them up before layering them up with some small roses on top.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

You can just see the decoupage in this picture and the inside of my card that has been decorated to co-ordinate with the front.
