I Love Promarkers DT Card - Distress Those Edges

It's Challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, and this week we'd like to see you "Distress Those Edges".  We're sponsored this time by Stitchy Bear, who very kindly gave the DT an image of our choice to play with, I chose the very pretty BBKakes Spring Blossums, which I coloured, of course, with Promarkers.  I then inked the edges of the topper with Old Paper Distress Ink to take away the stark whiteness and add to the vintage look.
 The pretty papers are Lili of the Valley, Baskets and Bunnies, a stack that I seem to be using quite a lot at the moment, it's shabby style seems to suit distressed edges, which I did with my Tim Holtz tool.
I've embellished with cream lace, cream satin ribbon, a stamped sentiment, a pink doily, a scattering of pink gems, a trio of pink pearls, and some handmade flowers made with an assortment of Woodware and Nellie Snellen punches.  The smaller daisies aren't quite as bright in reality, my camera seems to have an issue with some pinks and reds, no amount of fiddling with the saturation while editing was going to fix this!
