Not Distressing Again

So remember the film Home Alone with Macaulay Culkin running around the house waving his arms around and screaming, now imagine an overweight, forty something doing the same!
Ok it was only in my imagination but thats how I felt when I read the Just Magnolia challenge is for DISTRESSING.
Usually I go overboard with the distressing so I tried not to be so rough with the distressing tool and I think maybe this time it worked, I also inked the white cardstock with a matching inkpad. The background is some material I brought in Spain with words on in Silver, the Hubbies moaned that whether we go we still manage to find something crafty to buy. The die cut corners are to hide where I glue the material to the card, the lace I brought from Hobbycraft it wasn't cheap but I want some more, the pattern card stock is Basic Grey.
Hopefully Mr Blogger has behaved and posted this post, I'm off to Scrapbuddies crop at Mychett, to have a laugh and giggle and possibly do some scrapbooking.
