A Card with Textures

Hello friends,
This is my Inspiration Card for the ongoing DCAM Challenge  No 3 # Photo Inspiration.

Here is my card which i have made using lots of textures and distressing , and this is how it looks-
I started the card with a base pp , and layered it with another one which i have created using the Crafters Workshop stencil Damask using the Modelling paste and gesso, here 's a closer look -
And i have distressed it with some gold and pink chalk ink , loved the effect it has created ! (My first attempt at paper stitching on the borders , not so neat so please ignore that ). DieCuts & More has an updated stock of these magical stencils , you can check them out here.

The delicate oval die frame is from the Memory Box Palace Oval Frame set , which i have layered on the Floral oval diecut.I have added a ruffled lace as borders on both the sides of the pp. Finally added some textures and mulberry daisies from my stash and finished the card-

The sentiment label is handcut and i have moistened and crinkled the edges and added some chunky crystal glitters at the edges. I have rubbed all the edges of the cardstock with Vintage Photo distress ink.
Thats it from me , so how do you like my card , do leave your comments would love to hear from you all.
