Wild Flowers

I would like to start off saying.. Unfortunally I did not think this up, and to top it off I can't for the life of me remember where I  seen it. I have looked threw my computer and surfed a bit and cannot find it. So if this was your wonderful idea please tell me and I will give you credit ASAP... I am using this project for two challenges. The first challenge is JUGS color challenge. Colors needed are Lt. blue, Lt green, Lt Brown and Yellow. Second Challenge is C4C you need to have a Spring theme. So here is my take. I used flowers from CTMH april stamp set to make my outside DP, the border along the outside on front and the inside is done with my new sewing machine :)... I have used distreesed technique. Embossed my big tulips, and I think that is about it. Thanks for joining me today... Monique

Materials
Paper: LT brown, Lt green, Lt blue, yellow and vanilla CS
Stamps: CTMH March, April and Flower child set
Ink: SU Bashful blue, Yellow embossing powder and vintage photo distressing ink
