This is for Sandee's DTGD Challenge. I used Creamy Carmel craft ink to clear emboss the image and then lightly colored the flowers and leaves in Guava and Pear. I distressed the edges with a tool, tearing one corner and then ran the edges on my Distress Oxide ink pad and used a brush to brush & stipple on more ink. I broke down a scrap of paper with distressing, sanding and bending & crumbling was used to cover up a big blotch. No mistakes, just opportunities for embellishment. Tied on some ribbon with a scrap of trim in the knot and added some pearls. The background paper has gesso smeared on it. A lot to describe. Thanks for looking!

Love your card! great image and coloring. I love your attitude and creative spirit. This is what I try to do when something doesn't go as planned. It is an opportunity for other embellishments or to change the original design a little.

I was trying to explain that to my Desmond this morning when he accidentally tore his paper putting his card together. He cried and cried while I told him that things like this happen to us all the time and we just cover them up with cool stuff. I'll have to show him your card :)
It's gorgeous by the way. Fabulous shabby chic!
