Emma with a Pot Plant

For this card I've done things a bit different .. .. trying my hand at the vintagey distressed look.  I'm happy with how it turned out but perhaps not quite as distressed as it should be?

I've stamped up my LOTV Emma with Pot Plant then coloured her with Copics, I do love the images with a little dog included!

A couple of challenges I'll enter with this one: Creative Inspirations want to see a trio of something so when you see the card there are 3 butterflies and 3 pearls in a row as an embellishment.  Crafty Catz want you to use 2 or more patterned papers, I have used 3/4 different design patterns (2 with roses are similar and from the same design pack)

Here is the card:

I had the base paper already with inked edges fixed to the base cream card in my WIP box for ages .. .. you know how it is, an idea takes shape then things go off in a totally different direction, at least that's the way of it with me!  I've added the green and flowery paper layers and used a tool I picked up at the Cornwall craft fair to distress the edges then added ink, and nibbled out a bit of the green layer too.  Those papers are from the Marianne Design French Roses pack.  The edge around my image is a pricked design using a very old brass stencil and I distressed the edge of that layer too. So, how do you think I did with the distressed look?

For embellishment I've just added a single flower spray created with different bits of MD die cuts and those pearl on a stalk thingies, then the 3 butterflies created with a Nellie Snellen punch and emboss set, the text stamped on to a MD label die cut, and then top right the 3 little pearls in a row.
