A Posy for You

Good morning everyone!   Here's a card I made using an image I have had for a while by Penny Johnson for Stampavie:

I have coloured her with Prismas and the papers are by Anna Griffin.  I have cut and matted her with Spellbinders.  The border punch is by EK and the corner pieces are by Cuttlebug.  The flower die is a Memory Box and I have used pearlised card for that and the corner pieces.  I have crocheted the flower myself and died it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  The little resin flower I got from Teresa's My Crafty Heart Shop. Her service is fantastic with really quick delivery and reasonable postage costs and these little resin flowers are very reasonably and competitively priced check them out here.  The ribbon is from my stash.  I used a liquid pearl thing around the frame and I have just notice that  I must have smudged it!!  Will have to redo it now!!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

One Stop Challenge - Handmade Flowers (I crocheted and dyed the purple flower)

Well today I am off to the Trafford Centre with a friend, just browsing for me as I am saving for the NEC on Saturday and then for my holidays!!  Have a good day whatever you are doing, thanks for looking and take care xx
