Kadoodle 'my flower garden'

Hi everyone, a card today for ABC with a challenge of distressing in any form. I chose Ranger distress ink in vintage photo and black soot which I sponged around the edges of the image panel. The stamps I've used today are Kadoodle stamps from the Craft Barn 'my flower garden' and 'my garden accessories' which I've stamped in Black versafine ink and coloured with markers. Everything is mounted on the great quality A4 mid blue card also available from the Craft Barn. I don't know the make of the patterned paper as it was a pressie from my lovely friend Martine. I punched a little border with the MS doily lace punch and mounted this with the image on dimension tape then finished it all off with some doodled dots done with a white gel pen and some lovely May arts ribbon also from the Craft Barn. TFL. Chris
