Hello Wildflowers

     This card is the result of a "picture inspired" challenge. I was not looking forward to this. I've never done one before. When I finally sat down to work on it, it just seemed so easy. Here is the picture:

     As you can see there is plenty going on here - so many elements to choose from

     I started by lightly distressing the entire surface with Shabby Shutters. I randomly stamped various florals and leaves. The "hello" and typewriter are from my stash. I painted the sentiment with Americana Bahama Blue paint and used Peeled Paint Distress Stain on the typewriter. I added mossy green twine and blue organza ribbon to the typewriter. The ribbons are direct opposites - shabby and chic (mossy burlap and ecru lace). 
     The die cuts are Our Daily Bread Double Stitched Circles which are pop dotted to the card.
