Missed the Boat Again!


I started to make this card last week using the lovely rose bouquet digi stamp from Glitterbabe for I Did It Creations to enter their challenge. As often happens with me, the challenge was over before the card was finished.

I coloured the image with copics and added glossy accents to the wrapper to try & make it look like cellophane (not sure this worked as well as I expected) I also glossed the centres of the roses as florists now like to add a gem don't they? I edged the die cut with some delicate pink glitter chalk. The backing papers are MME Quite Contrary and Co-ordinations Gemstones card with a Craftworks pink sentiment enhanced by two tiny ribbon butterflys. I cut the fancy photo corners with my MS corner punch and added a bit of bling to them and the ribbon round the flowers.

As luck would have it by the time my card was done the lovely Caroline had set a Flower challenge on MSE so for once I would be in time.

I would like to enter this card into the following
