Distressed Luggage

I was one of many winners last week for do you stack up? first challenge and I had to do this week's challenge Distress It. Thanks to Allison and all her wonderful DT's. For this week I choose  one of Pop n' Stick's freebies, the luggage. I used the following materials:

Copics: E49/E25/E53/E41/W3/E18/E17/E59/E33 and the colorless blender (a lot lol)
Papers are from My Mind's Eye - Bella Bella
Cryogen White cardstock
Ribbon from Paper Temptress
Hardware from We Are Memory Keepers
Flower from my stash
Tim Holtz ink - Old Paper
Sandpaper around the edges of all the papers.

Now is is really my first attempt at distressing and hope it came out nice :) but I cannot take all the credit, I must thank Suzanne Dean for her wonderful tutorial.
