To create my card I used the beautiful Easter Iris from Twisted Papers, printed on Vanilla card stock, then cut with Spellbinders Circle Dies.  I used the Cracked Glass Techniqued on my image, and aged it with Ranger Old Paper Distress Inks.  For the Black panels, I used the Damask Cuttlebug Folder and the Sanded Core'dinations Technique.  The beautiful pattern paper is from the Wisteria Line by Basic Grey.

Ink - Versamark, Ranger Old Paper Distress Ink
