Distressed Blossom

Getting a bit inky, I love doing that, I had to set to as soon as I got home from Create and Craft, it seems that both myself and Leonie Pujol enjoy nothing better than getting our fingers inky.
I used the Friends till the End stamp set by Papertrey Ink and using the blossom I stamped creamy caramel ink all over the Kraft base card then distressed the edges of the card in the same ink.
I stamped the main focal blossom onto kraft card with Momento ink and used Copics to colour the image, then I added glossy accents to the centre and added little gems and glass glitter to make it pop. I cut this out when dry and tied a ribbon around the card in a bow and added the blossom on top with foam pads.
The sentiment was stamped and cut out with the Stampin up word slot punch.
