Playtime with inks and stamps

This card was just a good old play with distress inks and stamps and an excuse to use my Graphic 45 papers.

I started with a clean piece of white A5 card stock, used a stamp and three shades of distress ink to create the backing, I then distressed the whole paper back with the same three shades.  I used an element from the aforementioned Graphic 45 paper, I had to cut it up (sobs deeply into hands).  I then used the Stitched border from Debbi Moore's Shabby Chic - Haberdashery stamps, the Sewing machine and lady in coset are from IndigoBlu, I finished off with a ribbon tied into a bow.

This card is entered into the following challenges:
