I Love Promarkers DT Card - Feeling Distressed

It's challenge time once again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Feeling Distressed", and we#re sponsored by La Pashe.  I love the distressed, shabby look, so this one was easy for me, I used my faithful Tim Holtz tool to scuff all the edges of the papers, but you could use inks, paper tearing or paint, to name but a few, to get a distressed look.
 The stamp I've used is Lili of the Valley, coloured, of course, with Promarkers, then highlighted with a touch of Star Dust Sickles.  I matted it onto a frame die cut with a Spellbinders Floral Oval die fro vintage gold pearl card.
The papers are Papermania Victorian Christmas, as is the sentiment tag, I can see me using these a lot for this year's Christmas cards.  To embellish, I added some claret ribbon, a double bow, claret gems, and holly cut with Spellbinders dies.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Deep Ocean - #86 - Vintage
Holly Jolly Christmas - Ribbon or Lace
Just Inspirational - Bows
We Do Doobadoo - #14 - Something Feminine
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - #73 - Vintage
Addicted to Stamps - #113 - Holidays
