Distressed


Here's a Distressed card for the Lots to do challenge, you can find it hereLots to Do Challenge
I distressed the seam binding as well as the card. Used some old pattern pieces, a distressed book page and old buttons. The image is from I Brake For Stamps. Its also a Birthday card for a Dear friend!
