For my card I have started off by scribbling with a bright green oil pastel on white cardstock. I then toned it down with some gesso, but I didn't get the soft effect I wanted. I then appied some txture past with a brush and let it dry. I then had the soft green I wanted. I distressed the edges and adhered the panel to my card. I distressed the edges of a piece of patterned paper (KaiserCraft, 75 cents Collection) and adhered that to the card. I added a piece of a chipboard border and a paper doiley. The leave stamp I used is by Verve - stamped that on a piece of green cardstock and cut out. Added the leafs and the flowers to the card . Cut a metal flower embellisment in half and added that as well. Die-cut the letters from black cardstock and adhered that. I then added a tiny bit of blue to the flowers by spraying it with diluted Liquid Dye. Finally I toned everything down with some gesso that I applied with a paint brush

This is beautiful. I love the vintage feel the texture paste gives to the background. I can tell you devoted some time to all the elements because they are perfectly compliments to the background pieces. Outstanding job! Thank you so much for playing along with my challenge!
