Freshly Made Sketches 276

Welcome! Today's card if for Freshly Made Sketches 276. I really liked this sketch! I think this is a favorite of mine so far!

I rarely use pattern paper as a card base. I did this time and I really like the result!

I used the opposite side of the pattern paper to frame the white panel. I then used Distress inks direct to paper to create the background. I used the pattern paper to make the daisies.

Stamp is an oldie but goodie from Stampendous.
Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!
