Distressed Silhouette

I made this card for Joan's Silhouette Dirty Dare Challenge and Laura's Distressing Dirty Dare Challenge. I love the Kraft and Tangerine Tango together. . . and they both look good sponged and distressed. I stamped the Watercolor Pressed Flowers (found at Stamper's Dream) in Burnt Umber and in Tangerine Tango. The sentiment is from the Floral Whimsy set by Verve Stamps. The ribbon is Dark Chocolate Swiss Dots ribbon from Papertrey Ink. I sponged it with Burnt Umber so the dots wouldn't be so white. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your week is off to a great start! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Watercolor Pressed Flower (Paper Inspirations), Floral Whimsy (Verve Stamps); Paper- Kraft, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink), Tangerine Tango (SU); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette), Tangerine Tango (SU), DarkBrown (Fluid Chalk Ink); Accessories- brads (Making Memories), sponge, Swiss Dots ribbon (Papertrey Ink), distressing tool; Finished card measure 4.25"x5.5"
