AnnaBelle Stamps - Say It With Distressing

Today's challenge with AnnaBelle Stamps is to say it with Distressing.  I've coloured another of the flowers from Whimsy Flowers popped up over a layer of distressed BBD5 for my card.  I die cut the curved sentiment using an oval die trimmed it down to sit at the top of my card. Sponging, inking and water spritzing with some distressed seam binding complete my card today.
