All Natural...

Happy Friday everyone!  
I'm back with my second card for today- please scroll down to see my DT post for Creatalicious.  

It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is... N for Natural! You just need to include something natural on your creation like... raffia, dried flowers, wood, sand, etc. 
My card features the adorable Victorian Goth Girl from Meljen's! She colored with Copics, the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and the papers are from American crafts. I distress everything including the wooden heart button & hemp cord with Vintage Photo distress ink. I cut the flowers out with a CB die, scrunched them up a bit and then added a small wooden bead to finish them off.

I'm very happy with the way this card turned out... the deep rich colors remind me of fall... I LOVE fall- it's my favorite season and it will be here soon! :)

Now head on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT

Your silly design teamie!

I think you achieved a really fun effect with your distressing, it looks like everything, a part from the image, could've been made of wood! Definitely looks very natural. And cool!
