Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

Here is a sweet easel-style card I have made using The Greeting Farm's 'Dahlia'. I just love her! I have coloured her with watercoloured pencils and highlighted parts of the stamp using glossy accents to really make the image 'pop' (I am loving glossy accents and seem to be using it all the time now!). I love flowers, bling and pearls so I have used heaps of them for this card. For the dark blue background I have used core'dinations paper which I embossed then lightly sanded it back to make the embossing stand out. I also finally pulled out my sewing machine and had a go at stitching! (the green panels are stitched). For my bow in the corner I tied it using the 'bow easy'.

Let me know what you think!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
- Card Patterns; Sketch challenge
- Stamp Something; 'Cute somethings'. I think Dahlia is pretty darn cute!
- Splendid Stamping With The Greeting Farm; 'Pop!'. I have used glossy accents to make my project pop!
- Paper Cutz Challenge; 'It's your choice'
- One Stop Craft Challenge; 'More than one fold'. I have used an easel-style card.
