Simon says stamp challenge - VIntage and flowers

Hi there first off I want to congratulate my friend Joey on her and her husbands new addition to there already gorgeous family ,baby Ella, born this morning weighing in at a healthy 8lbs 5oz must of been all the whizz bang LOL x

I have made this card for the Simon says stamp challenge which is Vintage and Flowers. Well I watched the mighty Tim Holtz on tv yesterday and I must say he seems so grounded and a really lovely bloke. I purchased the TSV so I am so excited about getting that in the post. I also popped over to the Simon Says Stamp store to stock up on some other Tim essentials x I decided to use flowers as my main image and to make some with my new die cuts Marianne design die cuts from Crafts U love.

I used an image by creative expressions this beautiful fuschia from the fuschia plate. I coloured in with my prismas I so love them. I used some distress ink around the image and I stamped some swirls onto the image and a bit of text. I distressed the edges with a craft knife. I added distress stickles to the image too. I cut a border from my new border die cut which lets you thread ribbon throught it. I distressed this with ink too. I cut the flowers out distressed them too and added a button.

Loved this one thanks girls!
