WOJ Distressing Challenge



I have kept the inside very simple.



Is this distressed enough for you? as anyone who knows me knows I hate tearing ripping inking etc perfectly good paper and card but I do quite like the results when these cards are finished.
I was in the process of making this card when we had the phone call about Andy's mum on Wednesday night, I finished it off tonight and decided it would be quite nice to make it into a Thank You card for the lovely Staff nurse who dealt with us in the early hours of Thursday morning she was so lovely.
WOJ distressing challenge, WOJ stamp, Laura Ashley "Love Song" papers and flowers and doily from stash.

Thanks for looking
