My background has been sponged with Distress Ink and the edges distressed a little with a paper distresser, with a little walnut stain ink added to the edges.
I love the poppy from the Flower Market plate and I thought they were perfect for this time of year as the poppies in my garden are just about to bloom. I coloured my images with Distress Ink fired brick and peeled paint and added a little dimension to the flowers.
For a little more interest I added a bird brass charm. This card would be perfect for a SPRING birthday.
