Look Deeply into Nature

Hi I have made this card for my Brother for his birthday. I have entered it into Phindys Place Challenge  for Distressing. It's only the second challenge I have entered and the 1st at Phindy's place as I don't have any of there images yet.
I used Jenny Mayes tree stamp and birds , I also used a Stamp Addict swirl stamp for on the bacground and a Viva wording stamp under the trees. The Sentiment stamp is by Sheena Douglas. The backing paper
is one from Elusive Image and the dotty one was free from a magazine I think. I used two Die cuts. Go Kreate pointy frame and Spellbinders Labels H. The distress inks were Rusty Hinge, Black Soot, Wild Honey, Stormy Sky, Broken China,Weathered Wood. I also used Vera Magic, Sea Breeze and Adirondack Denim. All the stamping was done with Archival Jet Black. The lines across the writing were done with the edge of a piece of card. I also added Inkessentials white pen to the trees.
