Something a little different

Evening all, hope you are well. Although I haven't made a post for a while I have been creating!
I have been searching the net for different projects using my distress inks, a few ended up in the bin, but here's my first creation, made using the colour combo over at The Play date Cafe which I feel is good enough to share! 

The background is made by sponging different coloured inks onto strips of card then going over it with small flower stamps in the same colour. I then stamped some  Kanban flowers on the top with black ink, added some ribbon and gems and a small sentiment, and here it is! Not perfect but O.K for  a first attempt, if anyone knows any good tutorials using Distress Inks I'd love to hear, thanks for stopping by.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
