 I had a little block of time and made a quick card using Distress Oxide inks.

 I used a variety of colors on the background and was hoping for a soft pastel look.  I tried to add Distress Oxides on a separate piece of cardstock and use it to just color the top of the flower- that was a fail : )  That's OK, next time I have time to play, I will use this stamp again and see what I can come up with.......
 On the inside of the card, there is a row of the hearts up the Lt side.

 We took a quick trip to Virginia and visited my youngest daughter. We had a great time!

Challenges: TBA

Thanks for stopping by!\

Shelly, your card is very pretty! I love the soft muted background and the minimal look of the flower on top.

I'll look forward to seeing what you do next with your Oxide inks.

Love the gorgeous color in the background, Shelly. And the flower stamp is really pretty. I haven't taken the plunge yet with the distress oxide inks. I'm sure they are fun to work with but they seem expensive. But it's a fabulous card. Love it!
