My First Grungy Monday Challenge

Over at Studio L3 they have this cool challenge each week called "Grungy Monday" it's usually some sort of Tim Holtz based challenge. This is the first time I have participated, I have always wanted to but just haven't had a chance to sit down and really do one. I'm super excited about it too. This week they challenged us to do "Perfect Distress" which is usually some sort of perfect pearls and ink combo, it gives your work a shiny and cool look. Here is what I came up with for this one. 
I used the distress inks on the edges and in all the stamps in the background and then added copper and rust perfect pearls over those. I added the Memory Box butterfly die and the Tim Holtz rosette flower.  Fall is my favorite time of year so I'm kind of stuck on the fall colors. :)
