se och finna - see and find

I am really really pleased with this card and enjoyed making it so much. It's my first attempt with grungeboard inspired by an article in this months Craft Stamper by Linda Elbourne.

I made the background using Ink Dusters and Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Dried Marigold, I then stamped a Hero Arts flourish stamp in Archival Coffee. Then cut the frame, flowers and leaves from Grungeboard which I inked with Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade. Then stamped with a Prima script stamp again in Coffee. The image "se och finna" which is swedish translates to "see and find" is from a Paper Artsy plate stamped onto a piece of Tim Holtz cardstock from the Retro Grunge pad.

Dies used:
Sizzix frame and leaves
Tim Holtz Tattered Florals
Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly

I am entering it into the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers - Inky Fingers
Crafty Catz - Distressing
