Crafty Purple Frog Challenge #38 Let's get Distressed

We've loved seeing all your entries in our "Anything Goes" challenge but it's time for a new at the Crafty Purple Frog and this fortnight the theme is "Let's get Distressed" and is being hosted by Pauline.
I've used the "Night Daffodil" decoupage for my card.

Backing paper is a Kate Knight magazine freebie which I've distressed with Faded Jeans DI and matted onto stardream card which I've distressed with a distressing tool. Image is mounted onto a Spellbinder die. Corner  and dies from Marianne Design. Pearls and sentiment from my stash.
Inside has been decorated to match.

All decoupage and pyramage sheets are available from The Crafty Purple Frog.

Do call by the challenge blog to see the gorgeous samples from my teamies, you won't be disappointed.
