Another Card!



I would not normally put these colors together but LOVE how this card turned out!! Probably one of my favorites! I used a cuttlebug folder and a rolling pin for the background turquoise paper and sanded the upper layer lightly. Distressed the black strip with my new CTMH edge distresser and then added a strip of olive green. Stamped that with a Hot Off The Press Stitch stamp. Added some white ribbon and a few white buttons. Then stamped the flower from a Stampology set onto white cardstock and adhered to a black base. Colored the inner petals and added a brad to the center. For my final touch I added some greenish glitter to the outer messy petals! Enjoy the eye candy and let me know what you think!
