Hero Arts Nature Challenge

Good Morning All!

Just a quick post to submit this card into Hero Arts Nature Challenge. I saw this challenge when it started back in February and wanted to participate. Then I forgot about it and remembered it yesterday. Yaiks! I went to my stash of half made things and hope to find something that I could use to make card very very quickly. No time for colouring. All the supplies that I used in this card was found from there except the sentiment. Flowers were coloured with Distress Inks and the woodgrain background was embossed to get some detail.

This is my entry to the Hero Arts Nature Challenge.
