TMITA Challenge "Lucky Bear"

This week Nilla Berglie brings us the week's challenge for There's Magic in the Air. She would like to see us use the "Lucky Bear" image (free at TMITA) and any technique you would consider a method to distress!
Since I was distressed that I could not make a papercrafted card ...does that make my project distressed enough? LOL Since I cannot actually distress something phsyically, I figured out a way to make a digi card look distressed. My project may not meet the requirements but I am going to submit it anyway and let the team at TMITA decide. I just love this "Lucky Bear".
My distressed element is "background mats" of brown and green that I made to look like "old paper" that I "wrinkled up". Not really but "paper" looks like it.
Using Photoshop, I colored the image, made the balloon look embossed, added a bowtie to "Lucky", and typed in the sentiment. Kept it rather simple...

May you be lucky today!
