handmade flower

Hi! Today's card uses Weekend Sketch Challenge #84 and a very fun distressed flower that I've seen on othe blogs. I love this look! You can see a tutorial on Dawn's blog. I only had time for a quick card today, so I grabbed some scraps of Maine Blueberry paper which were still sitting on my desk from yesterday's card (sorry for using the same paper twice in a row, lol!).

Ok, I better get going - lots of housework has to get finished, it's been ignored LONG enough!

Have a fantastic day,

recipe -
stamps: short & sweet
ink: not quite navy
paper: not quite navy, bashful blue, old olive, whisper white cardstock, maine blueberry dsp
accessories: small/large oval punches, latte buttons, linen thread, stampin' dimensionals
