Hi everyone from very muggy and sticky Queensland, think i would trade with one of you in the UK right now...ahhh snow!

Well i have had quite a productive few days card wise for my challenges but now have more cards than i can enter...oops. So i have had to make a decision which quite honestly is not one of my strong points. The first card i will show you today i chose because it is a little bit outside of my normal style and i really like the way it turned out, girly but not pink and frilly.

I decided i wanted to limit the amount of colour on my card so there is only a little but i think it draws your attention to the gorgeous image more.

I started this one of backwards to how i create my other cards, i coloured my image first and just picked the colours of Copics i liked and used them. I then decided to make the rest of the card the same colour. I took my standard white pearlescent card black. I cut a square 12cm x 12cm from the same card stock and embossed it. I then adhered this onto another piece of the same card stock and trimmed a border. I wanted to put some ribbon on and decided to go with the red i had in my stash and i adhered this to the smaller trimmed cards. I attached this to the base card using foam tape to give it a lift. I then cut my image out using Spellbinders dies, i cut one slightly larger using the original card stock and mounted both to the card. I made a red bow which i then adhered to the card using glossy accents. I also added some small red gems. Its hard to tell from the image but i did some highlights on the flowers and bees using my clear star Gelly roll to add a little sparkle and put some Glossy Accents on the bees to make them nice and glossy.

I used...
Pearlescent White Card stock from Kmart
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Spellbinders Dies
Digital Image from Cuddly Buddy
Ribbon - Stash
Gems - Stash
