Divas by Design, Challenge No 3: Florals

Hello fellow bloggers,

Another two weeks have flown by and it's time for the third challenge over at Divas by Design.  Can't believe over 300 people entered the last challenge and the quality of the cards was amazing.  Well done everyone.

This time the sponsor for this challenge is a Divas teamie - Jacqui - over at The Poodles Digi Doodles.  You should really go check it out, some very cute images to be had.

So here is my card.  I thought I'd do something I haven't done very often, a bit of distressing.  Normally I treat my papers with the respect they deserve but this image for some reason, and don't ask me why, just spoke of distressing and inking.  Hope you like.

The image is Sugar Nellie: Leanne Ellis - All is not lost, coloured with Prisma pencils and then inked round the edge with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad. 
The papers are K&Co - Classic K McKenna.  
The big flower I made and the smaller ones and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  
The swirls are a Marianne Creatables die. 
Sentiment is Lili of the Valley.
