A Simple Distressed Background Quilled card!!

This is my first trial with Distress pads(I think recently am doing lots of trials with new crafty items....)

Created a Background with the Distress pads I bought recently.

When I was thinking about what to do with the Distressed Backgrnd, I just happened to have a look at Brenda's Candy pic n I decided to add some bold color flowers. And, added some quilled flowers and made that a card.

Added a Sentiment and sent it to a friend who had always been there with me in everything I do.

  14. Hello Catherine - here I am :) back-visiting! Thank you so much for you wonderful and kind comment!
    I really love this card, I am good in sponging with distress inks but creating backgrounds like this ended up in a mess everytime I tried it! I also adore your quilled flowers - that's something I have no patience for :)
    Happy to be your new follower and looking forward for further inspiration!
    Have a wonderful day, sending hugs!

  19. Hi Catherine,

    The distress inks have blended together to make a beautiful background and the red quilling stands out so well against it making it a really lovely piece.
