I am back with my second post for the day...
I have made this card on ordinary black cardstock.
Of course you can see my home made flowers... the big rose is handmade while the two small blue flowers were stamped with a cheap freebie foam flower stamp that came with a card making magazine.
I stamped the flowers with my Brilliance archival stamp pad in metallic blue on light blue cardstock and cut them out.
For the centres, I have used small pearlized flowers in white.
The embossing is done with Cuttlebug while the distressed paper at the bottom is pearlised handmade paper from India.
The shiny lilac paper is from a big role of gift wrap that I bought many years ago and I mostly use it on my kiddy cards.
The sprigs have been made with a Jeff tree punch and the ribbon is from my stash.
The sentiment is hand written.
I am going to submit this for the following:
