A bit distressed!

I made a welcome to your new home card for a colleague. the stamp is from Galerie Vernissage by Inkadinkado. I coloured it with promarkers and mounted it on a torn terracotta coloured panel. I distressed the edges of this and the backing papers (Kaisercraft Devonshire collection 6x6 pad) with a Tim Holtz distressing tool and some Wild Honey distress ink. The pleated flower uses paper from the same pad.
As it is all distressed I'm entering it into this months Stampman challenge where the theme is all distressed. I might just manage another challenge this week as I need to make Steve's Birthday card and my Dad's too. The theme at Allsorts is Male, so it fits a treat- let's hope I find the time!
BTW I'm thrilled to bits that I won a stamp from 'An oldie but a goodie' last week with my house mouse in a teacup.  Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally. Congrats on your win. It was a great card.
Love this one too. What lovely bright colours. I think I'd like to live in a little cottage like this. Your rosette is beautiful. I must have a go at making one of these, they seem all the rage at the minute.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
hugs Lisax
