Feeling a little distressed

My friend Pat came over to join me in a little cardmaking today, and since the great Tim Holtz is on the telly,  I've come over all distressed. Kath led me badly astray on Saturday, and after returning from her class, I promptly spent a small fortune on some rubber stamps, and some seam binding from the Ribbon Girl. The stamps haven't arrived yet, but the postie delivered the ribbon today so I immediately set about using it on this card.

  The swirl stamp is HOTP, all the other stamps are Hero Arts and all the inks are Distress.

I made this card too, using Hero Arts wild flower stamps I've had since I first started stamping, a good few years ago now. The butterfly is Hobby Art, and the inks are Distress. I'm entering this into my first ever card challenge, in the Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge #5 .
