distressed daisy

My mother's day gift from my wonderful son was money for some dies, lucky me.

I love this daisy die from memory box. I cut out in white card and coloured the base and stems with holly promarker. The flower centres were coloured with lime green promarker.

I used another die to make a stencil and stamped through the holes with Versamark ink and then sprinkled with green sparkle embossing powder. I brushed over the un-heated embossing powder gently with a dry paintbrush before heating and the result was a distressed looking set of sparkly dots.

I added the die cut flower and stuck that to a green base card adding a simple knotted ribbon.I haven't added a sentiment as I think it could be used for several different occasions so will add when needed.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-
