Amelia on a Journey!!

Another Greeting Farm Card. I have been organizing my craft area the past few days, and I got a new folder for my Greeting Farm stamps, so I decided to ink up a few of them!!! Here is the next card I made for Club Anya's Mystery Monday challenge. I LOVED casing this weeks card, it was so much fun!!! I chose to use Amelia from the Journey stamp set from the Greeting Farm. Isnt she so cute???!!! Ready for a new adventure!!!
I distressed the background that Amelia is on with Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I love the finished look that these provide. I cut the small sentiment tag on my cricut, distressed it with Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then stamped the sentiment that comes along with the Journey stamp set, "Embark on a new journey" I think this sentiment is just so perfect!!!
I finished off the inside of the card very simply. I layered some of the design paper and added a pink silk ribbon and bow. Very simple to add a lovely personal sentiment. The design paper is from my stash and has been there forever! It is from K&Comapny, but I have had it so long, I dont even remember the name of the collection.
I colored this cutie with copics.

I used Grungeboard swirls and distressed them with Shabby Shutters Distress ink, then added Olive Vine Glimmer Mist on top for some added sparkle. The prima flowers were sprayed with Cosmos and Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist for color and sparkle. I then added a vintage gold and pearl button to the center. I also added a punched butterfly from my MS Monarch punch. I glimmer mist sprayed the butterfly with Vintage Pink glimmer mist and added some small adhesive pearls to the center body. Three Adhesive pearls were also added to the top and bottom corners of this card for added interest.
