Distress Oxide Background – by Heidi Blankenship

Heidi is sharing another beautiful card today. She created the background with Distress Oxide Inks and a stencil, while creating her focal image with a purchased flower, string and ribbon – so pretty!  I love the smaller gold embossed sentiment in the lower right corner. Take a look:
