Flower Pot Wishes

Crafty Creations asked us to use distressing in our project and any one who follows my blog knows how much I love distressing. I am still learning new techniques and ways of combining them, but I can't get enough of it.

I really liked the colours I used on my last card, so I have used one of the patterned papers again. CRAFT Challenge asked us to use pink and brown, so I have edged the cream pieces of card with tattered rose distress ink and used pink flowers as part of the design.
Both of the larger cream panels are embossed for greater interest. I don't know about you, but I love the touch of luxury you can get from an embossed panel on a card. It can really help to lift the design. I've seen some amazing white on white cards on other blogs and the main thing that has made the cards stand out is the embossing. You just can't get that effect from a shop bought card.
I've used my new paper distresser on this one and experimented with tearing and curling the cream sections. I would have liked to have added more pearls, but I have run out and will have to go looking for some more.
I am also entering this card for:
Die Cut Dreams - Tear it up
Kaboodles - Embossing
