Stressed and Distressed ...

In between my flurry of activities at 3 am in the morn ..for the upcoming symposia and conferences ..I got bored and thought of diverting my brain in the best way possible :D crafty goodness!
I just thought of showing you all the detail shots ..rather a few more angles of my inspirational card at Beyond Grey Challenges :)
Here you go ..

The flourish bug bit me in the fingers causing me flourish'itis'...I can't seem to get enough of these curvaceous wonders..I end sketching them in the midst of my extremely academic discussion with the professors, because and please understand my distressed just can't repeat the same flourish again, its sacrilegious !
 Don't you just adore the cool colours of the flourish on this card ? Not that winters are over in Delhi..
Pie Lane is slowly capturing my life :D 

I hope you like the distressing on the newspaper (which has something about bollywood and yesteryear's actor, thank Goodness..)
This is my first attempt ..and honestly I think I overdid the distressing ..!
