Just because I can.......

........Blog, that is!
I've struggled to get on here even to comment for over a week now and didn't realise I'd miss it as much as I did.

I'd like to share this card with you, I made it for Tina's (artydoll) birthday. I started with the image which is one of my favourites. I coloured her frock then added rather more glamour dust than I intended! and 'Glossy Accented' her wings. The green card is the back of whitewash card stock, the backing paper is I think Laura Ashley, the other paper was part of a swap so long ago I can't remember who sent it - do you? The corners were punched with a MS punch. I made all the flowers myself, two are punched from dotty bazzil card and I made the other one based on a fab demonstration I saw at Craftwork Cards in the Harrogate Show as I didn't have any others in the right dusky pink shade. As ever, I used a Craftwork Cards sentiment and card blank and the pearls are from my stash.

I'd like to enter my creation into the following challenges: 3 or more flowers things with wings Anything Goes Make your own flowers
