More Tattered Floral!

Good Evening Girlfriends!

I have been playing with the Tattered Florals Die from Tim Holtz.  There was this piece of patterned paper sticking out of the pile and after trimming it down... an idea popped into my head!   Once it was finished I was pleased with how it turned out so am entering it into the Tattered Floral Challenge over at the Tim Holtz blog.

The lighting was horrible but I think you will get the idea!

 
Here is the inside...
 
 
The inside will look like this but.. you get bonus points for noticing that I put everything together going the wrong direction!!
 
 
For the flower I took a look around my rubber room and saw the quilt batting, netting, quilting material and some plain cream.  I cut six of each (six at one time) with this awesome die that pretty much cuts through anything!
 
From the cream coloured material I decided to put some Distress Weathered Wood on my craft mat along with a few sprays of water.  Once they were coloured I scrunched them up and let them dry in a ball.  Once the flower was together I dabbed Distress Stickles in blue on some of the edges.
 
The star quilting material along with some more of the cream flowers, I frayed the edges.  The netted material kind of frayed itself lol!
 
I cut the quilt batting and then stamped it with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and sprayed some Gold mist on them.
 
 
Here is a side view...
 
 
I wish the lighting was better... it really does look neat IRL!
 
As for the rest of the card...
The dp was from a huge pack of paper I bought at Costco years ago.  ( I actually used it for the plain side originally!
I purchased the ribbon from Fabricland and the twine is from my fave store...Crafty Capers.
 
There you have it!  Thanks for looking!
 
Hugz,
Sheree
