Marianne Creatables Button Flower Die, Distressed Inks.....and an Old Book of Maps!

Woohoo Fans!

 Got a few links for you to check out today, if you want! This card is my entry for Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Challenge! on Lets Create Challenges Blog.  Please join in cos the more the merrier!

I tried hard to meet all the 'rules' lol .

One old off-cut of White Linen card ( I have tons of offcuts because I hate throwing stuff away ...yeah, I know, you are the same!)

I inked the edges with  Distressed Ink  and scored a few lines down one side and along the bottom to 'tart' it up a bit, using my Hougie Board.
I found a decaying! book of  Maps and used it to cut some Button Flowers from a Marianne Creatables Die.

 The flowers were coloured with various Distressed inks,blended with Cut 'n Dry foam.

Old bits of thread to make them look more interesting lol!

Peel-offs  for the stems that I have had for years and years and finally the 'Rub on' word  "Challenge" that I never thought I would ever use ....  I love it! Please have a go x
