Forgive my smugness but I'm so chuffed with this card (How sad!!). Everyone seems to be putting beautiful flowers on their cards that look like they cost an arm n' a leg!! Not wishing to part with any limbs I trawled YouTube & found a fab vid' with step-by-step instructions.
I used  a Flower Doodle stamp from Papermania in two different sizes stamped onto paper from the Basic Grey Bittersweet collection. Cut them out & curled the petals with scissors & used an embossing tool to centre them. I've glazed the inner petals & added pink pearls from Prima. Yes! I know you've all been doing this for years but I am...slowly...catching up! (Is it true The Beatles have split!!) Foliage made from my Nellie Snellen punch, cute Codi image was a freebie from Pollycraft Designs a few weeks ago when they had a DT call - coloured with a variety of browns, pinks, creams & green. Her hat trim & shoes have been glazed & green gems for her bracelet. Entering it at -
