In Distress!

...not really, but this card sure is!  I made it for this week's "Make it Monday" over at the Papertrey Ink blog!  Their technique this week is distressed edges, and you know how much I love to distress everything!  Anyhow, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try another of my distressed flowers, and I was very pleased with the result:
As you can see, both the flower and the card edges are distressed!  I also love love LOVE this PP from American Crafts!  I got it locally at a store for a VERY discounted price!  =) 
I also love all of the yummy cardstock colors from PTI.  Sooooooo glad I finally broke down and invested in their cardstock!  =) 
Once again, this was made for PTI's Make it Mondays: 
Anyhow, NOW it's finally time for bed!  I hope everyone is having a lovely week!  I'm finally starting to feel better, so YAY!  Think spring!!!  =D
