I have gone distressing mad~

Hi All~

I don't know what has got into me the last few days. I have gone card distressing mad~
Considering I don't normally do distressing, I have the distressing bug....Do you think I have used the word distressing enough yet?

I followed this lovely sketch on Friday sketchers, Isn't it a nice, and it was so easy to do too.
I chose this hAngler image, love the little hat she has on and the lovely little teddy bear, so cute.
The papers are DCWV Mariposa again and the cherry paper was from my stash.
Coloured with Pro-Markers, I have added a flower, leaf and a pin. The little sentiment is just a sticker from my stash, as is the pink dotty ribbon.
This is the first time I have ever done any sewing on a card. I have wanted to do it for ages, and my machine has been in my craft room for over a month now, but today was the first time, and I loved doing it, hope you like it. I chose a zig zag stitch, but it's a nice machine and I have lots of stitches to choose from, so will deffinatly do that again.

Fab card and well done you with the sewing, I keep saying I'm going to use my sewing machine but still haven't got around to it, is it addictive?
Thanks for joining us at Penny's and good luck.

Gorgeous card, Debbie - love the distressed look!! I'm completely distress-obsessed, find it very hard not to do it on my cards nowadays. You're probably doomed!!!

Hi girl!! Just got your message and as far as the punch around the page goes, I had a hard time at first too. Here is how I do it. First, I cut a 5x5 piece of paper. Then I punch the corners, then the inside. When you do in between the corners, be sure to line up your already punched corners with the guide on the straight punch. I hope this makes sense. Its hard to put it in words. :) Hugs to you and gorgeous card!
