Lily of the Valley, RHS Garden stamps

Hi folks!
Today I'd like to share the card I made using Joanna Sheen's Lily of the Valley Stamp set. I used my Cricut machine to cut the card blank which I coloured all over with distress inks. These were Antique Linen and Walnut Stain. The patterned papers were from a 'Hot off the Press' stack that I matted onto some dark brown cardstock. I cut the frame using my circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities. I added a couple of eyelets to the front panels. The delicate flowers, wheel barrow and sentiment are all stamps from the same set. I stamped and embossed the images. I used 'Pine Needles', Walnut Stain, and Black Soot distress inks to paint them except for the flower heads where I Cosmic shimmer water colour paints. I finished the card off with a ribbon bow which hold the panels closed.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend and don't get too scared the the Spooky goings on tonight!
Ciao for now!

Beautiful card Sandra, really unusual fold. Love all the 'ageing' detail you have done and the wheelbarrow image inside.
