Beat the Heat with Penny Black


I'm joining the Beat the Heat challenge over at Penny Black using some goodies
that I won last month just for leaving a comment!

I chose Life's Messages, a cling set with some awesome "words to live by"
and a new flower die called Bashful. And here's my card.
 

I chose one set of messages and white embossed it on a notebook die,
then ink distressed it in ombré fashion and water spritzed it.

The flower was cut from two colors of card stock and ink distressed.
Some white dots were added for a bit of texture and everything was adhered
to a woodgrain embossed card.

Thanks, always, for stopping by!
