Hi! Have you seen the latest addition to the Crafter's Companion store?! They just added some Die'Sire Aperture dies. I love these because they make my life so easy. These dies basically do all the work for me - die cut them and your card is done!

OK, I've babbled on long enough. Now, it's time for you to go to the blog to see all of the new releases!! Enjoy!
We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn! Those folks just rock and they are sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice!
For my creation, I used Distress Markers, Distress Inks AND I distressed the edges of my card! I really tried to push myself with this one. I don't normally use doilies or my Distress Markers, so I went all out. And that sentiment? It's on clear acetate, to give the card a little extra zing!
To start, I colored onto the Penelope's Blossoms stamp set with Distress Markers, spritzed them with water and then stamped them onto watercolor paper. I die cut a few extra elements using the coordinating Lawn Cut and added them onto the main bloom with some foam adhesive.
Then, I added Distress ink to the doily, and tried mixing some different patterened papers. To finish off the card, I distressed the edges and added the sentiment from Birthday Tags with the banner from Good Fortune.
This one is a bit different than my normal style. That's a little 'distressing,' isn't it??!?!!? Just kidding! I hope you'll play along with us!
