Distressed Beauty ...

Each piece of cardstock on this card has been embossed, inked and distressed!  The Coredinations cardstock is so fun to work with ... the more you play with it, distress it and shabby it up, the prettier it becomes!

Mojo Monday #155 - sketch
The Shabby Tea Room #26 - tag
Really Reasonable Ribbons - flowers & ribbon
Our Creative Corner - letters/numbers
The Color Dare #75 - vanilla, pink, cherry, green
