Tea, anyone?

Good afternoon and a very warm welcome to my new followers. Thanks to all those of you who have already entered my candy. I know some of my followers don't normally enter candies but I hope you will make an exception this time as there are 7 fab prizes on offer.

Onto my card, which has been distressed. I even tore the papers in some places, gasp! I'm getting into this distressing now, never liked it at first. Papers are Paper Cellar Victorian Burgundy and Victorian Classic, which fell into my basket at Dunelm Mill the other day. The sweet Pollycraft image has been coloured with Promarkers and I simply added some pearls and organza ribbon and bow.

Challenges:
Sketch n Stash Great sketch (new paper)
Pollycraft Distressing
Try it on Tuesday Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments No sentiment
Crafty Catz Pink and brown

That's a quick visit from me as I have a card I must finish.
