No Pattern Paper Challenge

The theme of the challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers is "no pattern paper".

To create my card I used several different Distresses ink that I blended on my background.  I nexted added a sewing stitches stamp to the background.  I then added a wooden bird cage and a combination of leaves and gold flowers.  To completed the card  I then added a tag and a sentiment stamp .  

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
