Thanks a bunch

Todays post is my DT sample for shernocky crafts I started with an A5 card to which I added a layer of core impressions, I had trimmed it, inked the edges and sanded to reveal the inner colour first. The topper is one of the PaperArtsy HP1109 stamps images which I used  to stamp onto watercolour card. I used  three Tim Holtz distress inks to build my image vintage photo for the flower stamp, forest green to add a little colour to the leaves and faded jeans for the flowers. Once my image was done I used frayed burlap to ink around the edges of my topper. I placed a piece of just ribbon down the centr of my card before putting on my topper. A very simple card but hope you like it.
