Distressing time...

But in a very good way :D I decided to have a play with my Tim Holtz distress ink pads and try a different style of card.  

I took a plain sheet of white card and stamped it with a key stamp, then distressed it with Antique Linen. I used this as the base layer. I then stamped another key related image and distressed it too. I layered them onto brown paper to make them stand out a wee bit.  I made the sentiment and printed it out, that way it could be related to the card more.

I hope you like the finished card :-)

I would like to enter it into the following challenges;
