Paper Sundaes Challenge #53 DE-STRESSING & Blog Candy Winner

Thanks to everyone who took part in Paper Sundaes Birthday Celebration!  Hope you had a lot of fun and it was great to see what challenges everyone chose from last year to use in last week's challenge!  This week at Paper Sundaes the challenge is DE-STRESSING (distressing)!!  Who doesn't need to de-stress after the holidays?  We are being sponsored again by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp so you know there is a great prize up for grabs! distressing is certainly not my strong point but I have seen so many fabulous projects out there & can't wait to see what everyone comes up with and learn some new tips!
Here's my card:
I used some of Basic Grey's Bittersweet collection that I've been hanging on to for awhile.  It's so pretty I  just didn't want to use it (silly huh?).  I bet that nobody else out there but me does this, right???  I used this fabulous Tilda with Tag by Magnolia and coloured her with copics.   I loved the sketch that my fellow Sundae Girl Wendy used on her Warm Winter Wishes card so I asked if I could copy the sketch and she said YES!  Thanks Wendy!!  I used my edge distressing tool from my Making Memories kit to scruff up the edges of the card & used some of my Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Spun Sugar & Walnut Brown ink up the edges of the image and scallop background which was cut out using my scallop nesties.  I added some pink pearls & ribbon to complete.  The XOXO sentiment was from an old Making Memories rub-on set that I have.

Oh....almost forgot that the winner to my Spesch Stamp Blog Candy chosen by is:
