Summers Last Burst

Evening Folks
Oops, trying to type this post and watch The X Factor at the same time, so it'll probably take me about an hour! :D Now, I'm not sure I'm completely happy with this card, mmmm, maybe I am, I think I am!!

Oh dear, anyway, the fab image is a Penny Black stamp, I used 3 different Distress inkpads in the colours: 'Crushed Olive', 'Tumbled Glass' and 'Mustard Seed'. The yummy paper is from the S.E.I. 'Mimosa' pad. The deep edge border punch is a Martha Stewart, the swirls are from a Marianne Creatables flower die-cut set and the organza ribbon is Anita's.

I've used the gorgeous 'Clear Rock Candy' Distress Stickles, love this stuff and I've tried to capture it in the photo, I spread it with my finger around the edges of the image.

And I've received another award, this one from the lovely Sharon, thank you! Now, I'm afraid I've got to tell you 7 things about meself :D
1. I'm 4ft 10"
2. And a size 1 in shoes
3. I've walked up Mount Snowdon (never again!:)
4. I've had my hair cut once this year (I know, dreadful)
5. I've still got a huge schoolgirl crush on Keanu Reeves
6. I'm a Great Aunty!!
7. I'm abit scared of cows! and sheep! (You wouldn't believe I grew up in the country)
I'm going to have to break the rules a little bit here, your're supposed to pass it onto 7 other people, but I can't possibly choose, so I'd like to pass it to all my lovely followers.
Thank you for looking and hope you all have a fab Bank Holiday Weekend :)

GORGEOUS! thanks for sharing your technique, i am still unable to achieve those kind of smooth looking distress....there is always a rough stroke left behind by the sponge..T_T
