Pearls, Pins, and Punches

Yes, that's the challenge at the Die Cuttin' Divas.  I thought to myself, "I can do that!"  Now I just need to get it posted before the challenge is over!!!
From Close To My Heart®, I used Bamboo, Topiary, and Hollyhock cardstock.  The flower was cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge (I distressed it a little!), and a pin. The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.  I distressed all of the edges with Desert Sand ink.  I already know who will be receiving this card - I hope she likes it!
I'm also linking to Make It Monday and Heart 2 Heart!
Have a great week everyone!

OOoh I love it!! Such a beauty. I love the doodled design down the edges (did you do that or is it a stamp?)
