Charisma & Stamp Something

This is my DT card for this week's challenge over at Charisma and I'm also entering it into Stamp Something's challenge which is "brown plus one colour".

Our challenge this week is to use distressing on your card, so not in my usual style but I really enjoyed giving this one a go. I don't have any distressing inks so I've used some SU! chalks around the edges of the image, sentiment & flower and using my SU! distressing tool (which comes on the Cutter set) I've distressed the edges of the paper and the cardstock the sentiment is on. The image, a Pollycraft stamp, has been coloured with PM & SU! markers and I've paper pieced the dress, the rest is all Stampin' Up! as follows:

Markers - Pumpkin Pie; Creamy Caramel
DSP - Sweet Always (retired)
Sentiment - from Trendy Trees
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip; Whisper White
Buttons - Pumpkin Pie from Earth Elements set

Hope you can join us this week.
