Double Trouble

This week at 2 Sisters the challenge is Distressing.  We're sponsored by 2 generous companies this week, Stitchy Bear and One Stop Craft Shop.  This is not one of my favourite themes so I've struggled with inspiration a bit.  I've therefore used 2 torn panels of card, one plain and one patterned, layered onto a distressed looking patterned paper used for the main card.  I've also chalked the outer edges of my nestie with gold shimmer chalk for a more aged look, and used one single embellishment being a huge coffee coloured flower which I think complements the distressed theme.  I'm not sure I've completely mastered this distressed theme, but it's not too bad (is it???) !!!  The sentiment is one of my own, and is available on my freebies page if you'd like to download it.

Please pop on over to 2 Sisters to see the creations from the other members of the design team and to link up your cards for our distressed challenge.

I've been inspired by the following:
Have fun
