Caard Hop Day 3

Just joining the hop and don't want to miss out on any of the other good stuff? Go back to Jenyfur's Blog to start at the beginning.

Love the texture that you can create with the Whitewash Core'dinations cardstock. I dry embossed the background of this card and the squares with cuttlebug embossing folders. The flowers are from Flourishes and were stamped with Cranberry Colorbox ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I quickly used the scraps from the top project to put this one together. The edges of the Core'dinations cardstock were sanded for added texture.
