Michelle Perkett challenge #29

Here is my entry for this weeks challenge on the Michelle Perkett Studio challenge blog. This weeks challenge is to use distressing on your card. I wondered at first how to do this, but then came up with the card I wanted to do.  I hope you'll join in with us this week.
I decided to use this Peace Garden image from Michelle Perkett.  I just love this image.  The image is colored with Marvy markers.  I tore the paper around the image and inked the edges with my SU Really Rust ink pad.  The papers are some I recieved in a RAK.  Aren't the great?  I trimed the papers to the size I wanted and distressed the edges with my distressing tool.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.
