Allsorts challenge week 377 - Fabulous Florals

Good Morning, another Saturday and it is turn of the the lovely Brenda to host the challenge and she has chosen the theme of Fabulous Florals.

Our sponsor this week is
Marianne with this lovely prize.




Here is my card

I think I did a bit of an overload with this die when I first bought it as I loved it so much but it has been a while since I have used it and I do still think it is a Fabulous Floral die.

Memory Box - Delightful Peony Outline.
Dotty paper - old SU
Background - get this - Distressed Inks and also on the backing of the flower and leaves.
Memory Box - Happy Birthday Extravaganza die. In hindsight I should have cut it out in pink or green.
For the background of the flower I glued the flower head onto the distressed card and then cut round the flower head.

I have been AWOL for the past few weeks from the Playground but snippets of white card have been used to cut out the image and the sentiment so I will be jumping in there when the gates open tomorrow.

Thanks so much for popping by and I really appreciate your comments, good or bad.
Hope your weekend is good and your week even better.

Hi Kath,
what a super, super design card.
I love the very fab inking behind the flower, and the flower is so very pretty.
A great idea to intense the ink under the flower also.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Don't think you could possibly overload with this pretty die. (I've got it, but not sure I've ever used it). Love the way the colors glow behind the white die shape. The ombre shading on the mosaic pattern looks so nice with the die atop it, and I love the border treatment. Gorgeous card! TFS 7 Hugs
