Read all about it

READ ALL ABOUT IT is the challenge of the week, has anyone checked out the simon says stamp "STAMPTEMBER" month…
in honor of STAMPTEMBER they are having a blog hop and a big challenge week… hope everyone enters… the theme is as i said
"Read all about it" we can interpret this anyway we like… 

the whole card is based on writing, from the old paper clipping collaged background to flowers that has been stamped with writing… it's all about reading!!!!

after collaging the background i embossed the card with tim holtz alterations, then i inked it up with distress, i left the middle part lighter and outer area darker, then i attached the wording stamped flowers, found a metal button to give it a chic look, finished off with inked letters "Wishes" 

here is a close up!!!
