Took a while for this one to click into place - I did the black die cuts two days ago and had them sitting on my desk on top of white card... Then I saw a card with distressed ink background [my sister again] and decided to do a background and voila!! But I bet you weren't expecting this outcome...
[Di - LOL]...

Materials Used: Memory Box Arboscello Tree die, Snippets of black card stock, bling, silk flower & bling from stash, flower image from free paper received in a magazine a long time ago... Tim Holtz distress inks: tumbled glass, mustard seeds, shabby shutters and milled lavender.
I am linking up to the below challenges with this creation
