Insightful Meadows!

I have a card to share today :-)
I thought I would use one of my favourite stamp sets and also one of the first I bought by Unity......♥♥♥ love this set...........'Insightful Meadows' The lovely Emily is out of stock I think at the moment, but there are more on the way!  I wanted to make another card with a 'vintagey' feel and these stamps do lend themselves to almost any style!
My base card is textured 12x12" cardstock cut in half to make a 6x6" card, I've just smudged Distress Ink round the edge! I've created the background paper by stamping and clear embossing the flowers in the set onto Ivory pearlescent paper and then colouring with Distress inks and water splattering. I used Kraft card to stamp and clear emboss the main image and added colour with my water brush and Distress Inks. I stamped the sentiment with StazOn and highlighted it with Glossy Accents. The matt is a piece of corrugated packaging, I've just 'roughed up' the edges and inked them. All that was needed to finish was a length of Twine! Thanks for looking, I hope you all have a great start to the week...........the sun is coming out now, but it's still frosty and cold!
I'll catch up with you very soon.
