Quick Last minute card

My daughter needed a 21st card in a hurry and didn't want anything cute!  For some reason she doesn't like any of the Tildas, Moonlight Whispers, Gorgeous Girls or Miss Anyas which I love!!  Anyway, this is just about the first stamp I ever bought which I stamped onto watercolour card and coloured with Distress Inks, as well as distressing the edges with same.  The flourishes are from Autumn Leaves and the sentiment I punched out using Stampin Up oval punches - these are sooooo useful!!!  Ribbon and flowers are from stash. Oh and the background DP is Basic Grey Wisteria.

Think I'm going to enter this into the Quixotic Paperie challenge this week that is asking us to use one of our old stamps - well, you can't get much older than this one!!
