Distressed Paper - Burlap Flower card

Hi Junkies!  It's Holly posting today, and I'm sharing this shabby chic card with you.  I used an oldie but a goodie technique called Distressed Paper on the patterned paper.  You can find this technique in the 2/03 issue - told you it was an oldie!!  LOL  As fun as the new techniques are, sometimes I like going back to the beginning of Technique Junkies and playing with some of those older techniques.  

I paired this shabby paper with a scrunched, wrinkled ribbon and a flower cut from burlap fabric.  I actually used a small strand of the burlap to tie through the holes of the button.  The sentiment is from Flourishes - perfect for sending a card that isn't necessarily a birthday card or a holiday card.  :-)
