Made Especially For You Challenge: Distressed Ink

Our sponsor this week is (My Craft Spot) with this wonderful
set of Friends and Neighbors stamps. Sure wish I could enter to win
this for myself.

So, onto my card. I am very timid when it comes to destressing anything on my cards
and this time is no different. I used a VERY light inking along the sides of my card, which I will
admit doesn't even really show up, but trust me it is there.

This card is so out of my norm, but I think she turned out great. The back ground is
a light floral which had dragon flies on it which you can't see, but I loved the faded look
of this paper. It had just enough lavendar in it to make my little gal pop.

I used my victorian sizzix frame which I just love on this card. My little gal is
lightly water colored then cut out. This something new that I am trying, so I still
have some techniques to  work on, but I think she turned out pretty well.

For the flower I used my Anemone Flower Topper in two different colors, and for
the center I used a white paper flower. The leaves around the flower is from my
leaf die.

I used my circle cutter to cut our some pre-stamped sentiments that I had done along while back.For the
framing of the sentiment I just cut a little larger circle in the lavendar, then placed a few more leaves around it.

For the inside I framed a piece of white journaling paper with the same lavendar from the front
 and placed another leaf at the bottom. I am really super pleased with this card.
