Hi Everyone

I hope you are all well and have lots of nice plans for the weekend.  I have a card to show you tonight that is a little different.  I wanted to try some distressing although it doesnt really look like it from the photo!  The light was awful when I took the photo so the colour is much better in real life!

I used some kraft cs and some V&A paper for both the main card and the panel.  I stamped the background verse and the flower with some chalk ink pads.  I scrunched the flower up a bit and held it all together with a brad and then added the ribbon which is a nice soft lilac but you can't tell from the photo. I distressed all the edges and roughed it up a bit. 

I'm not sure about it, it doesnt look like it did in my head!  Still it was nice to do something a little different. I hope you like it!

I used these colours for the CR84FN challenge 12 which I thought were lovely.

I'm off to bed now, have a lovely weekend.
