Miss you using Penny Black and Altenew

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by
The moment I saw the Dandee stamp from Penny Black I just knew that I needed it.
Start off with your cardstock and using distress ink slowly (working from your mat to your cardstock), make circles to make a blended look.    I chose the Dusty Concord for the color.
I wanted a background look so using the Unity Stamp Company handwritten stamp.. Stamp this several times.  I stamped this by hand not suing much pressure.  I used the same dusty concord to ink the stamp and lightly make the impression on your card stock.  I didn't want this a heavy stamp, just a light background.
Take your Dandee stamp and place this where you'd like.  This is a larger stamp so the card base would need to be a larger size. 
I then took my Fancy stitched frames from Craftin Desert Divas and cut the oval.  Colored this with the Dusty Concord and stamped 'miss you' from the Altenew Painted Greetings collection.
For the finishing touch I took my gold shimmer spray and gave it a mist.  It is a gorgeous shimmer that can not be seen in a photo.
I hope this has sparked some creativity!
