Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #36

Hi Everyone!!
Welcome to another great Whimsy Inspiration Challenge! Our theme this week is "Distressing!"
You don't have to use a Whimsy image, but it would be great if you did! And it doesn't have to be a card - we welcome all paper projects. Don't forget to check out the challenge details - and your chance to be a Guest Designer with us - over at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog!

I was very excited about this card, because it was included in Issue 7 of the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Magazine! You can see my card featured on page 21 in the magazine HERE! And again, if you haven't been reading these FREE online Whimsy Magazines then you are missing out - they're full of fabulous inspiration, ideas and tutorials!

So anyway, I'm showing it on my blog today, as it fits perfectly with the Distressing theme!
This wonderful sentiment is from Raindrop Echo 'Summertime Sentiments' set, available from the wonderful Whimsy Stamps Store. The vintage papers are softened with a light sanding to give that distressed look, and the Distress Ink sponging adds to the aged feel.

Hope you like it!
And the angle shot...
