ATS Challenge

Over at the ATS Challenge this week the theme is Distressing, well it couldn't be a better theme for me as it gave me a chance to use my new Zutter Distrezz Machine and make my first creation with it .
The stamps I used here are from CC Designs it's The new Swiss Pixie Nora on a swing, isn't she the adorable !!? , I coloured her with Copic markers, I fancied a change from my normal girly pink but I think she's so pretty even without pink and these citrus colours really suit the garden feel of this card .
The paper is from K& Company the flowers and leaves are Prima, the sentiment stamp is by Paper Makeup and I punched the shape the sentiment is stamped on with my new EK giant pinch.
To finish off the distressed look I went round all the white edges with Tim Holtz Distress inks (Tea Dye colour )
Hope you all have a lovely evening
