Crafty individuals challenge-Face Value

Hello to anyone reading this.

I've been a bit slow in posting anything recently. Seem to have so many things churning around in my mind, so can't concentrate on actually getting anything finished!

But... I have actually managed to do a couple of challenges this month, very unusual for me.
I just hope I  get them in before the deadline!

The first is the Crafty Individuals Face Value challenge, and I am submitting the card below.

I think this image is so pretty and it is one of the first stamps I purchased from this company.
I have stamped it first and then embossed it with a Sizzix heart folder, swiped over with  Victorian velvet distress ink.
The other embossed panel is a Tim Holtz border, again swiped over with the distress ink, before embossing.
I like the effect this technique gives to the background.
The little flowers are also Crafty Individuals, a freebie I was kindly sent with my last order. They are very pretty and very detailed.
Hope you are having a good day and bye for now.
