This card was changed several times until I arrived at this
Kraft paper was used for the card base. I had this herringbone paper in my stash.
Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon
I decided to stamp my favorite image and color with Copic markers.I fussy cut and then used Liquid Glass to make a bubble design. Then my friend told me it should be cracked. So it was cracked and ink distressed.  The image was also distressed and a razor blade was used to semi-cut the are close to the flowers.
The image was matted on a Spellbinder shape and accented with Pizzazz Aplenty pearls in red.
On the inside I used a sentiment and Baroque corner . This was all matted on that patterned paper.
Did you notice I rounded the corners also?
I finally can say I like this card much better after all of that.

Won't you join us this week at Sweet Stamps? We love seeing your creations.
