CRINKLED FLOWERS JUST FOR YOU

I made this card for todays Ways to Use It challenge. We were to use crinkled cardstock. I made these flowers using Basic Grey Bittersweet DP. After crinkling up and smoothing out the paper I used my sanding block to distress it further.

The background is the shaving cream technique I made a while ago.
I used my new Bow Easy to make my bow. I really like this little contraption so far. I ordered it from Sharon Johnston's blog.
I used a new stamp for June from Clear Dollar Stamps which is a single stamp for the sentiment.
Card Supplies:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps~Just For You
Paper: Basic Grey Bittersweet DP, Shaving Cream Background, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, (reinkers: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze)
Accessories: Oval Punch, MS Arch Lattice & Butterfly punches, Certainly Celery & Kiwi Kiss ribbon, Basic Grey Granola brads, dimensionals, sanding block
Thanks for looking....have a great evening.
