Distressed Eleanor

This is my card for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #249 for this layered sketch, which was perfect for my multi-layered style and for CC421 to use Basic Black, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze. I used distressing on another card I made today and felt this one was just calling out for some distressed edges too! Love this colour combo!

And here's my card.
