Friends are Special Treasure of the Heart

Well out of my comfort zone today with this dark card but I was inspired by the photo below.  Die cut some foliage and used Distress Oxide all over and then Distress ink to add depth.  Stamped the flowers using a layering stamp in blues Distress Inks and fussy cut them.  Then I wasn't sure where to go for the background... found I liked this brown card some attacked it with sandpaper so it wasn't flat brown, and found a dark brown card.  From my stash I trimmed up the sentiment and decided to add a matching green card strip..... 

I am playing along with Just Add Ink challenge #526 - photo inspiration... wonderful image and fabulous colours of nature.
Thanks for stopping by my blog   ---- have a Happy Day and stay safe
