Having a ripping time

Hi again. I know, two posts in one day - unheard of! I've had this card half made for a few days but haven't had time to finish it as I decided the house really needed a spring clean and have tidied the cupboards and thrown lots of things out. I think my nesting instinct has finally come - only 8 weeks late!

Onto the card. I used Glimmer Mist on the base. The image is stamped onto a background of victorian velvet distress ink. The stamps are fab ones by Kaisercraft. I'm entering it into Sir Stampalot challenge - All distressed.

Finally I've found someone in The Sir Stampalot challenge that actually have made it "All distressed"!
Admitedly I haven't checked out ALL the entries yet :-) but most of the ones I've seen is very pretty, but hardly distressed at all.
This was a joy to see!!! Very good job! I like the flowers as well! If you want to see my entry, since we're on the same track:
