It's a Grungeboard Extravaganza

Linda's Grungy Monday challenge is relatively wide open....as long as we use Grungeboard. (See Sir Tim's video HERE.)    I began with Tim's Tattered Florals die and then embossed the flowers in a Sizzix folder and inked them with various colors of Distress Inks.   To add some shine, I used the Cafe' collection of Perfect Pearls, attached the flowers with a Basic Grey brad and stamped one of Tim's sentiments on patterned paper to make my card.
