Distress those projects @ Charisma this week.....

Good morning !!!!
This week is the first time you will see Inspiration from the newly revamped Team Gem! and we want to see Distressing on your projects!!
I'm on Carly's team but I just had to have another go at distressing again. It's been ages since I did this technique and I thoroughly enjoyed making this card.

I have used an image from one of our sponsors this week Some Odd Girl the image is called Head in the Clouds, isn't she cute. I coloured her with Copics and Spectrum Noir pens. They blend really well with each other.
Papers are Rose Garden from Papermania, flowers from my stash and I bought that fabulous glitter organza ribbon from a store at Trago Mills in Devon a few weeks ago while on holiday. I got a bit carried away and bought loads of ribbon and trimming, it's very well priced, I was like a kid in a sweet
The Pearls are from The Hobby House and the little sentiment is from LOTV (I think!!, can't find the packet...oops)
If you have time please go and see the amazing distressed creations from our lovely Charisma Gals on the challenge blog.

Our lovely Sponsors this time are...

I'm looking forward to seeing all of your distressed projects this week and hoping to learn a few techniques along the way. One of the many things I love about being on the DT @ Charisma  is that I get to see all of your fab creations and lovely blogs each week.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day.
