At the point I started this card I hadn't ordered my distress inks, these would have probably made the distressing part easier, but I got the desired effect using chalks and a little brown ink and I also distressed the edges of the digi image and the music paper by scraping a craft knife down the edges and curling the corners.
For the flowers I cut varying sized circles from old book pages, scrunched them up, inked the edges and sprayed with my home made glimmer mists. I finished those off with buttons from my stash and added some die cut flourishes. I also used glimmer mist to colour some cream seam binding ribbon as the cream didn't seem to look right.
I stamped the Sentiment using Versamark and embossed using gold embossing powder, I also used gold embossing powder on the charm as I only had silver hearts in my stash!
