Shabby Penny Pamper

Good Morning Bloggers!
I hope you're well!
I have this little card to share with you!
I have made a similar card in the past using this image & papers 
but this is the shabbier chic version!

Whenever I see her, I start singing "Splish Splash I was taking a bath!"
The proper colour is this

but, when I printed them out, my printer was playing games
& they looked a bit muddy. However, I quite liked the result,
 so decided to stick with it! The papers were printed on to matt photo paper. 
The Sentiment Ticket is from The Crafty Pad too!

The image was coloured with a combination of Promarkers & Flexmarkers
The edges were distressed with a pair of scissors then inked

The flowers were inked & layered with a brad to secure them.
(These have been in my stash forever)
The leaves & butterflies were punched & inked.
The ribbon I've used was plain white but it also received the ink treatment!

The sentiment ticket was distressed & inked too!
Thanks for looking at my creation!
I hope you like it!

I have candy on my blog here! Do play along!
