Distressed Forever Friends

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week. Glad it Friday at last. I'm off to London tomorrow on a Hen weekend so just wanted to post this card before I go.
I had a go at the distressed look as I treated myself to a Tim Holtz edge distresser and a blending tool. I don't think I was brave enough with this to give it a real aged look, I think I need to practise more. This is what I used:

Forever Friends stamp
SU sentiment stamp
SU Scallop Edge Punch
Tim Holtz edge distresser, blending tool and Distress Inks
K & Co Paper
HOTP swirl stamp
Raffia and a piece of dried flower from stash

The image has been mounted on 3D foam so has caused a bit of a shadow at the bottom, so please just ignore that, it wasn't supposed to be there!

Hope you all enjoy whatever it is you have planned for the next few days.x
