Flower Tag

This is my card for the following challenges :

I started by blending Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Brushed Corduroy and Broken China Distress inks over the tag. I then stamped the swirls, which is from the Baroque Motifs Stampin' Up set, with Crushed Olive. The flower was stamped with Archival black ink as was the word, which are both from the Bloomin' with Beauty Stampin' Up set. The vertical strip has had Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive blended over it. The main stamp is from an Elusive Images set and I stamped it with Peeled Paint. The words are from a Paper Artsy set and have been stamped with Crushed Olive. The border is a Martha Stewart deep punch and I've blended Brushed Corduroy over it, as well as over the main card edges. The background has had the same green Distress inks blended over it then I've stamped the swirl again with Crushed Olive.

The 3 brads have been treated to some Alcohol inks to change their colour to a deeper one. The main brad is a Marah Johnson (I've only got one left!!).
It's been a real April showers day again today, I was hoping to go out for a walk tonight, but I don't think that's going to happen now. Well I'm supposed to be on tea duty tonight so I'd better go and see what chaos I can cause in the kitchen !
Thanks for looking
