Distressed Cactus

I'm not sure that I really got the concept here - but I have given it a go!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Little Miss Muffet - Distress

CHNC Pattern Paper - April

I have used two different papers in the background of this card.  I tore the edge of the top layer paper.  The image is from Little Miss Muffet and coloured with copic markers.  I inked the edge of the die-cut with Distress Ink - Antique Linen.  I crumpled the die-cut and then dotted some Distress Stain - Tea Dye onto a plastic sheet and swiped the die-cut across it.  I inked the reverse of a chipboard die-cut with Antique Linen and then dotted the edges with the Tea Dye.  I tied a piece of twine in a knot on top.
