2 Sisters Challenge ~ Distressing

This week at 2 Sisters we are being sponsored by Sitchy Bear Stamps and the challenge is DISTRESSING.  Distressing is not one of my favorite things so I don't do it very often. So that's probably why I found this challenge to be a little difficult for me.  But in the end I'm very excited about how my card turned out.  The image that I used for my card is from Floppy Latte Designs and is called Guarding The Egg.  I colored this image using crayola colored pencils.  For the distressing I tore around the image and each piece of cardstock.  I sponged around the edges of each using brown ink and then lightly on the very edges using black ink. The look that I was going for was a burnt look which I feel in the end I was able to achieve.  I added 3 brown pearls to the upper right corner and stamped the sentiment right onto one of the cardstock blocks.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
