A friend asked me to make a birthday card so this is the card I created for her.

After I embossed the flowers, I just used distress inks to do the background.

Stamps: PTI Mum's the Word
Inks: Ranger distress peeled paint, shabby shutters, broken china; Versamark
Paper: Hero Arts mixed layering paper - Midnight
Other: Hero Arts white embossing powder; pearls from Michaels; PTI twine

Thanks for looking - Betty
