Me and My Florals

Morning all, back again
Today I wanted to share with you one of the images I got from my purchases, some time back, from the Doncaster Dome Whichcraft UK craft event.  The images just sort of shouted out to me and were a real good price too.  They were from Justinklined and it has taken me a while to get around to colouring them (shame on me)

So here is the first one, quite CAS for me as I wanted the image to be the main focus, hope it worked..
Now I made a Wedding Card, although think this one could be used for many occasions, your suggestions are welcome as I will be using it again as I adored colouring it up.
I also tried a new thing for me, to emboss without die cutting using one of my grand decorative circle nesties and the corner details using the Whimsy die cuts, which I got from the Hobby House, now you can find the link for the shop in my left side bar as I also used lots of their pearls these are the small and tiny ones.  I added the little bell, crystal bling, flower and bell from my stash and the contrast to the white is the lilac paper.

Here is a close up of the copic coloured image
These images also come in digi format and you can find them 

I would like to welcome my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return and I love hopping around:)

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

A.R.T. - Ribbon and Pearls

Morning Kate - yes, this certainly works being CAS. The image is most definitely the focal point and it's coloured beautifully. Love the placement of those tiny pearls - makes it look like a cameo brooch. Like the embossed dies - makes a great impression (did I really just say that.....! lol), without adding layers. Would make a beautiful sympathy card and think it would look good layed on it's side (as if on a table???). Have a great weekend.......just getting ready for visitors coming down later for a long weekend.

Hugs.
