Not So Very Distressing

Morning all.  Alphabet Challenge day today.  The letter D brings us to the word 'Distress'  You can use distress inks, distressed papers or you can do what I did and distressed the edges of my papers.  I do like to have a defined edge to my papers when I make a card.  I will either use matting and layering, a stitched die cut shape or even embroider a border with cotton.  One that I don't do much is to distress the edge.  Don't know why.  I have a special tool and everything.  I even like the effect.  Anyway, here is my DT card.

I chose the papers and created the layout before I decided which stamp I was going to use.  Strangely, it made colouring it much easier as I had my colours before me.  The image is from  Bugaboo but it must be an old one as I can't find it in the shop.

Please pop over and join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.
