Get Distressed with An Oldie

Good morning. Thanks to everyone that joined in my 'Add as Butterfly' challenge at An Oldie but a Goodie last time - we had some fabulous projects and it was a real pleasure to pop round and see all your lovely work.
This fortnight the lovely Fleur has set the theme 'Distressing'
Here's my take on it:

I have created the background with distress inks and Glimmer Mist then roughed up the edges with scissors and then inked them.
The tree image is from Creativre Expressions - stamped with Distress Ink and then glitzed up with Glamour Dust. The gorgeous Tilda is one I won last year on Friday Sketchers and has been coloured with PM's then cut out, shaped and popped up with dimensional glue.
The border punch is Martha Stewart - inked with Victorian Velvet DI. Ribbon and charm from stash.

Don't forget that you need to use a stamp that is 6 months old or more to qualify for the prize - from the lovely Susie Sugar at Die Cut Dreams
Thanks for popping over.
Have a great day.
