Spoonful of One Stop!

For this week's One Stop 45 challenge (a sketch) and Spoonful of Sugar's 'Distress' Challenge 67 I created this birthday card for my friend's birthday.The sketch isn't square this week so it's not my usual 21cm square, it's 21cm x 18cm and the base card is a hammered cream cardstock (approx 260gsm). The next layer up us a lighter, natural cardstock which I deckle-edged and distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Adirondak Mushroom.
The two pieces of braid I think are upholstery braids and the white lacy edging is my Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch.
The rectangle and square mats are from DCWV Luxury Mat Stack .
The wordstamp is a Funstamp and I can't remember the make of the collage stamp but it's one of those magnetic ones - I've had it so long, I can't ever remember where I got it from but I think it may have been Cherrytree Crafts in Derbyshire.
Flowers are Prima and Sizzix and the leaves Martha Stewart and the glitz on the flowers is a mix of distress Stickles and Glitter Dust.

Hope you like it!
