Distressed Flutterby Card

Hi everyone!I had a couple of spare hours today so I thought making a quick lil' distressed card for this week challenge at Digital Pencil Too. This is the first time I don't use stitching on my card. It's Sunday and I don't stitch on Sundays but I think it turned out just fine without especially since the theme is distressing. This time I chose a boy image called Flutterby; this lovely toddler here resembles  a bit my very much adored adorable son so I loved this image the moment I saw it while browsing through my older Mo Manning images. I even forgot about it. I used a lot of Diamond stickles and even though I took my picture in the sun it is much brighter and lovely in real life. Maybe I shall try taking better shots tomorrow.

Supplies:
Stamp: Mo Manning- Flutterby
Coloring medium: Promarkers
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Dies: Magnolia Doohickeys grass and dragonfly
Misc: ribbon from WOC, pearls, punched leaves, diamond stickles, DI (vintage photo, antique linen), ultrafine glitter

Well it looks like I am gonna have to spend a least a day studying your cards -- I think I should come to your house and be your Nanny and then you can teach me how to make wonderful cards!
