Magnolia w/Sunflower Card - Thinking of You

I made this card for a friend of mine as a "Thinking of You/Thank you" card.  With this card I wanted to give it a really grungy-distressed look.....and I was very happy with the results.  Now, for the stitched look, I used rub-ons.... doesn't it looks so real?  I colored my Magnolia image with my Copic Sketch markers, distressed all of the paper using a Stampin' Up! spot in Chocolate Chip and a sponge dabber and my handy-dandy edge distressing tool by Heidi Swapp.  Using my Coluzzle oval shape cutter, I cut my image out, carefully going around the feet, flower and head....I used my scissors to finish those parts off.  I really love the way this card came out....

Cardstock used: Chocolate Chip by Stampin' Up!, Designer Paper: Basic Grey-Origins, Stamped image using Memento Ink-Tuxedo Black onto Bee Paper by the Bee Paper Company (recommended for use with copic markers), Tools: Coluzzle, Edge distresser by Heidi Swapp, Misc: Rub-ons by Autumn Leaves, Pop-dots by Ek Sucess, Tombow Mono adhesive Glue.
