Simple Stamping

Meet today's card.

 We are half way through the month and it's time for another post at 

I began by stenciling the background of my card.  I used Salty Ocean and Peacock Feather Distress inks on a applicator to cover the background.
Next, I got out my MISTI and stamped the sentiment from Serendipity using black Memento ink.
I stamped the wildflowers from Tim Holtz using more of the Memento black and added some images from Purple Onion as well.
As a finishing touch, I sponged the edges of my card with more Distress ink.
