Hello Everyone,
Sharing my fun with Tiddly Inks - Bloom Beautifully-Emma. I designed this card with the idea of greens in springtime and St Patricks Day. Playing with green especially because I seem to take special notice this year on how quickly my grass went from patches of brown to beautiful green.  I have always loved how green and pink look together and even do some of my Christmas cards with these colors so this was the color combination color I wanted to use on this particular card.  What is so funny is how I came about to distress the paper. I accidently tore while cutting with a dull cutter so I decided to have fun distressing the paper with a pink ink.  I layed a layer of  Cuttlebug embossed pink design paper underneath. I also powder embossed the sentiment with Bronze Zing to give it a prettier pop instead of always using black. The beautiful color green buttons are from my wonderful button stash.  Emma was colored with Spectrum Noir.  I have also been doing something different with some of my shaped dies as shadow backgrounds. I have been cutting them in half and placing them strategically behind to where it compliments the top layer.
