Truly Scrumptious #79!

Hello! Mega quick post as I'm meant to leave for work now - oops! I'll fill in the gaps later!
It's for Truly Scrumptious and the challenge is Distressing & Die Cuts/Punches.

*Edited to add - Sorry for the rushed post! This week we're sponsored by the lovely Simon Says Stamp and you can win a $20 voucher!

Here's my card, and I have to say, I hated it until I added the die cut flourishes on. It just sat there on my desk annoying me until I thought I'd pop those and the heart on, now I think it's OK! I made it using some Echo Park digi paper which I printed in Sepia. Then I didn't have any ink which matched so I used these dark inks on their second impression and I quite like the distressed look it leaves! A happy little accident! The wide ribbon is actually 2 pieces of the same ribbon side by side and the paler ribbon is a hanging loop from one if my mums tops - she saves them all for me! The glitter card is ages old and from Create & Craft I think.
 I hope you like it, thanks for looking!*
