Simple Flower

This is my card for the following challenges :

I started by sponging Antique Linen and Scattered Straw Distress inks around the edge of the background paper, which is My Minds Eye. I then stamped the swirl in Scattered Straw over the corner, which is a Crafty Individuals stamp. The three flowers are from the My Minds Eye Bloom 'n' Grow stamp set. The tags were cut out with my Cricut and the top tag has been inked with Antique Linen Distress ink and the leaves stamped over it in Scattered straw. The main flower is from an Inkadinkado stamp set, stamped in black Archival ink and a pearl coloured with a peel off pen in the centre.

The edge punch is Martha Stewart and the ribbon has been stapled to the tag and I've coloured the staple with a Pro Marker.
