Distressed Foliage ~ FMS58

I made this card for Freshly Made Sketches #58.  I loved the look of this sketch and you could go in so many different directions with it.  I'm trying for a distressed fall look.
The first element I started with was the paper.  Then I decided what stamps and accessories I wanted to add.  The colors were fallish, so I pulled out my French Foliage set.  With the sanded backround piece of Early Espresso Core'dination and the vintage feel of the set, there was no other choice than to distress everything.  I added a copper button, which doesn't really fit with the sketch, but I felt it needed that something extra. 
Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: French Foliage
Paper: More Mustard, Early Espresso Core'dinations, Tangerine Tango DP (retired), Scaringbone and Howlstooth DP, Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Circles #2 die, Stripe EF, Copper button, Linen thread, Corner rounder punch
Thanks for peeking and have a fabulous day!
