Simply Distressed

Good afternoon to all of you.  I hope you're all having a fantastic day so far.  I have a little something to share.

I used Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy Vintage Boutique for my card today.  I colored this lovely lady with copics and colored pencils and then I decided I would distress my card ... to go along with the vintage theme.  Now I have to admit, I'm not much of a distresser.  For some reason I have a difficult time making myself rough up the edges of my paper lol!  But I think I've managed to do a decent job with the distressing, don't you?  I've added some lace and a lacey rosette that I made.  The pearl in the rosette is actually a brad that I've had forever.  My layout is Maria Therese's sketch from over at The Sugar Bowl.  There's still lots of time to join in that challenge so be sure to pop over and check out all the details.  If you would like to own this lovely lady you can find her over at Funky Kits.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
