Challenge Card using LOTV "Thomas".

This is "Thomas". He's the latest addition to the LOTV Stamp Range. I have coloured him with Copics and used "Pumice Stone" Distress Ink Pad around the image and the backing paper which has also been distressed with a tool, as I wanted a more vintage feel to the card. The papers are 7 Gypsies and have used 3 MS punches. I spritzed the flower with Glimmer Mist then added some Gold Glamour Dust while it was still wet. The lace and gems are from my stash.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges;
SSDS - Open Theme
Lots To Do - Distressed
PollyCraft - Distressing

Thanks for looking and if you havent entered my candy, then please see the above post. It ends this weekend!
