CHNC challenge extra for July mid-month inspiration

This is my card for CHNC challenge extra for mid-month - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of some of the lovely DT ladies and we hope that you will join in our challenge here.

I used the lovely Stampendous 'snowy postcard rubber stamp inked with memento rich cocoa. I tore round the edges and brushed with vintage photo distress ink.

The background paper is from DCWV, which was also brushed around the edges, with the addition of the flower and greeting.

This is also for:
