Here is my card as me being me I love a bit of Ink and distressing.. along with some Stamping and embossing.
I have used the fabulous three ferns Hero Arts Stamp and my faithful background text stamp from Penny Black.

My Tip
For a lovely deep pearly splatter on your distress background use ranger liquid pearls in your mini mister... TIP 2 keep a separate mister for pearls in your water as you can never get it all out and well why would you want to? tehheehheee :0)
A couple of Challenges:
Corrosive Challenges  (2E) - Distressing
CCEE Stampers - (1E) - Distress your papers
Head over to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge
