Another Thank You Card

This is a thank you card made with a Ching Chou-Kuik's Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Winter Watcher" and if you are impatient it's now available as a digital image from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I have used various backing papers I was given last year so I don't know their origin.  I have stamped the image on watercolour paper with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink pad and then bled out the colour.  I've also highlighted areas with Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans distress ink pad and then tore around the edge and used ink again to highlight the tear.  The embellishments I have used are some butter muslin (which I have frayed the edges of which took some time), flowers with star brads for their centres, buttons, gems, Card Candi, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and gingham ribbon bow.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cute card - love the colour theme. Although I've just seen you've frayed some cloth and it took ages. I've just bought some - perhaps it'll be staying in the bag a bit longer!

Thanks for joining us at Stampin' for the Weekend and our Texture Challenge!
