For my card this week I used one of Chelsea's darling images called Cammy. I decided to make her a little shabby chic so colored her in prismacolored pencils and copics, added some stickles sparkles and tiny pearls to give a little bling.
I still haven't got the distressing down yet, but I will keep trying!

the bottom part was created using some flowers from Jolee's, butterfly stickers from K&Company, and labels from Martha Stewart. DP is from DCWV Be Mine stack, flowers by Prima, gems and brads from Micheal's, leaves from Martha Stewart punch.
