Whimsical Flowers

I've used more stamps from my prize on today's card...these flowers are from the 'Touch of Whimsy' set by Penny Black. I masked off a vertical strip, then blended 'Milled Lavender' Distress Ink over the card blank...I then blended more of the same ink over the top to create some darker stripes (I'm afraid I couldn't get the stripes to show up very in a photo...but they are there...lol). I stamped the flowers over the top using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink. The sentiment stamp is from the CCSR set by Papermania.
