Vintage African Violets

Kristine here with a flowery friendship card to share.

 

I love the way the muted, vintage background makes the bright violets POP!

For the bottom panel I stamped Wood Grain Background stamp with Adirondack Pebbles dye ink.  Then I stamped Large Trailing Butterflies multiple times with Ranger Dusty Concord Distress ink.  Then I sponged Old Paper Distress ink around the edges and on the panel with my Lil' Inkerz.

For the second Layer I stamped Pattern Royale with memento Grape Jelly dye ink.  Then I sponged Antique Linen Distress ink on the panel and Grape Jelly dye ink around the edges.
 

I colored the AfricanViolets with Alcohol Markers, fussy cut it out and adhered it to the top panel with pop dots.
Here's the inside of the card.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed today's card! 
Have a great weekend
