Another commissioned card

Hello lovely bloggers,

I have been busy - Mum is here and we have a visitor from the UK staying with us for three months... and to top it all, Zeenya came back with this unpleasant flu' from her school trip. She had loads of fun though and the fever was a free gift I guess... So that is why I have not been able to visit you all. 

Here is another commissioned card ... 
I have used Penny Black's Stickaroos from The Sticker Store sent to me by Merry
I just love these feminine looking stickers - so English, aren't they?
The textured paper at the bottom is handmade from Indonesia and the gems are from Prima.
The ribbons are from my stash.
I do like the colours on this card but could have done better with the layout, I think. Mum suggested that I put the bow on the side to fill up the empty space. I have glittered the border of the mauve paper which makes it more charming.



Will come and catch up soon.

Hugs and thanks for all the kind comments...

Monica
