Distressed Tea Cup

Good evening! I hope you had a great day. The card I made today uses a distressed technique. I love the way it turned out. I have always loved to distress, however I was always scared of going "to far". Well I watched a video with a lot of distressing for a card and it gave me confidence to do more. The video is from Kristin Wilson. The technique is called peek a boo paper.

Cup image: free digi from Bits N Bobs
Decoration on cup: Tim Holtz French Connection
Paper: Garden Florals from Recollections
Gems: Recollections
Ribbon: Details & Accessories (ruban)
Pin from stash

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
The Hybrid Chick: use pink
Totally Gorjuss: something new (paper)
Truly Scrumptious: pretty in pink
Charisma Cardz: bling
Crafty Cardmakers: distress it

Thank you for all of the sweet comments I have been receiving. You all are the best! Until next time......
