May Shoe Box Swap - Friendly Flowers Card

This was the card I designed for the May 30th Shoe Box Swap (my VERY FIRST shoe box swap - how exciting)! I forgot to put this on my blog back in May. The swap went off without a hitch! I was so excited! I cased this idea off Split Coast - but I changed the bottom bit to a designer label and then I changed the background - that is about all I changed. I love this card because it sorta reminds me of an antique quilt. Sorta homey. I sponged around all the ivory edges to give it a distressed look.
