Distressed Wood grain with flowers


Hi, I was inspired to make this card by the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More
 where they have this gorgeous pic for inspiration. I layered one of the vellum flowers onto white card so that it stood out like the dress.

It closes in 6 hours so I'm cutting it fine!

I used snippets of vellum to die cut my leaves so I'm visiting the playground at

I'm also linking up to the anything goes challenge at

Materials used:
Darkroom Door woodgrain stamp, versafine ink and clear ep; distress inks; Stampin Up Flower Shop stamp; vellum; white ink and white ep; Elizabeth Craft Designs leaf die; bling and sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
