One Stop Craft Challenge #87

Morning all today we have a new challenge for you at 
The Theme is Distressing, the sponsor is Dew Drops Craftz.

I am also entering my DT card into the following challenges 
Here is my card
I have used an image from Dew Drop called Tokyo Girl and coloured her with Copics.  I have done so much distressing on this card I don't know where to start lol.
Well I have used chalks to distress around the image, I have used my distressing tool to distress the edges of the papers and flowers, the base paper is DCWV which I have sanded, the two big flowers I cut out with different sized circle punches using the same bp screwed them all up rubbed chalks into them the added some diamond stickles.  Instead of adding a flower or gem to the centre I used buttons and threaded some cotton through.
The little flowers I punched out with a small retro daisy punch rubbed some chalk into them added some stickles and gems the top one I added some free flowing cotton thread.
I used the same thread criss crossed over the bp for a notice board effect.
The papers are Basic Grey the sentiment is from a RAK.
Here are some close up pictures for you to see.
I think this card will be perfect for a teenager
I hope you like it and please pop over and see the other DT creations they are stunning 
I do hope you will join us this week at One Stop Craft Challenge.
Big hugs see you later.
