Papertrey Monday - Distressed Edges

I made this for the Papertrey Make it Monday #5 Challenge.  This week was distressed edges.  I did a watercolor technique called "walk & wiggle" - oh it is so easy, and really fun!  I don't do watercoloring very often, but I might start!  I really like the effect.   Here is a close up of the distressing.  I use a butter knife to distress my cards [Why buy a tool? Just takes up more space]
 and I used PTI Framed and Turning a New Leaf stamp sets.
Thanks for stopping by~
