Not just distressed,almost suicidal

The light is a bit better now so I've taken another pic of my card.

My take on the Papercraft Star sketch above -challenge 63.

The Crafty Pad - challenge 139 - Diamonds are a girls best friend. Diamonds come in many colours ,mine are lilac.I love the addition of the gems,they lift an otherwise very dull colour scheme.

I think I got carried away with the distressing (my card is suicidal). I quite like the colour combination ,brown and lilac are not usually used together.

It doesn't look that bad to me - quite the reverse in fact. A good card. I always have trouble with shabby chic - not romantic enough I think, although I can get quite distressed about it!

I really like the colour combo and all the distressing just makes the card wonderful. Your title gave a little chuckle though.

I hope you can talk this card down because it may be distressed but it is fabulously distressed!!! I love your take on this sketch, and the lilic diamonds do work beautifully with the color scheme! Thank you for joining us this week over at the Papercraft Star!
