A Card for Mo and Cute Card Thursday Challenges

Good Afternoon Everyone, yes I know Ive been very lapse this week posting any cards, well next week there will be three so be grateful I was quiet this week for sure next week will make up for it. Todays card has been created for two challenges Mo's "Distressing" and Cute Card Thursday "Lets get Krafty", well Ive used Mo's little floor washer (mum) for my image, this is the first time Ive not only used this image but also this Kraft card, its a bit difficult to colour so Ive used my Karisma polychromo pencils to colour it then I tore around the edges, I then used a inkpad to distress the edges. The sentiment is one I created on my computer and printed it of and mounted it onto a piece of dark beige card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for the first mount Ive used the same dark beige card and on top Ive used two papers from the "Count your Blessings" from Kay Miller downloads, its a very pretty green beige background with flowers on, then on top Ive used a plain paper and used my all around border punches from Martha Stewart, it was then stuck on top of the first mount.
The sentiment was positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of Ive used another of the papers from the same digi set, and punched out two flowers with my new Die namics flower punch, then rolled them and stuck them to the base, the stuck them to the card at the top on the left on top of some punched out leaves with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
