Distressed Card

Distressing is not something I do very often as I can't stand the mess :D but nevertheless I've created the distressed edges on the brown background paper of this card by using my scissors along the edges. The white card blank has been inked around the edges with brown. The blue paper is embossed with swiss dots cuttlebug folder and then sanded to reveal the white core. My favourite part of this card has to be the sentiment, the first time I have used my white opaque embossing powder and I love the visual effect, plus if you run your finger over it has a sandy texture which adds to the distressed feel.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
