Torn & Distressed

Hi its Sunday and its a new challenge from us at 
The new challenge is "Torn & Distressed"
For my card I have used the Bon Voyage Digi which can be found in the vintage section. 
This card really took me out of my comfort zone, wherever that is.
So what did I do,
 I first embossed the back layer of coredination card  and used the sander to bring out the pattern. 
I then used digi papers that I inked tore and rolled to make the next 2 layers.
The final image the first layer was printed on copier paper , scrunched up and then I went over the creases with distress inks.
 I then printed another of the images on better quality paper
and coloured it with my Promarkers .
I cut out the elements I needed and mounted them on the image  . 
I embossed the trimming on her hat to make it stand out.
To finish the whole card I added a bow in co-ordinating colour but I first went over it with my heat gun so it looked slightly withered.
Thanks for calling by.
Please let me know what you think .
