Distressed flower for Unity addicts wednesday!!

Good morning all!

Its wednesday and another Unity addicts challenge. The challenge was from Maria and the inspiration was the blog hop blinkie from saturday!! woo hoo! Love these colors and the design!
Here is my card, I used BasicGrey dp for circles for the distressed flower, I piled them all up and slapped a brad on there and voila! I "aged" the whisper white cs by sponging creamy caramel, chocolate chip and river rock ink on the edges and used a black marker to add faux stitches.
Stamps Used: March KOTM-Unity Stamp company
Papers Used: Making memories dp, cupcake dp BasicGrey, whisper white SU
Ink Used: Chocolate chip, creamy caramel, river rock SU
Accessories Used: scissors for distressing, black marker for faux stitching

Left you love in your gallery but just wanted to stop by to say HI!! Our snow is melting pretty good today! Your tulips will be ok....it usually takes a strong freeze to kill them!!!(if anything the edges of the leaves will get 'bit'!) I'll pray for a good dr. appt. tomorrow!!!
