Hawaiian Hibiscus with Distress Inks

I am super excited to FINALLY bust into my distress inks! I was blown away by the colour and didn't get into too much blending this time, but I am so stoked to play around with them this summer. I really liked the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and knew I just had to play along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to use plaid! I decided to incorporate a stitched die into my design and am linking up with the "in stitches" challenge over at Heart2Heart.

Stamps - Hawaiian Hibiscus, Just To Say... (CTMH);
