The theme on My Time To Craft this week is Floral Frenzy - to use as few or as many flowers as you wish. Well I got into a frenzy doing this card - it isn't what I intended it to be like! I stamped my image and coloured in with a Copic and a Promarker - but the Promarker (pink) bled all outside the edges, and I didn't want to waste such a large image. So I cut it out and mounted it onto the card with sticky foam pads - then thought it looked a bit flat so stamped and coloured it again and cut out the main part of the rose and decoupaged it. Anyone who knows me well knows I do NOT do decoupage! However, I am fairly pleased with how this card turned out eventually and it is now in the post to the recipients so I hope they like it! The gold corners are cut using a Cuttlebug die in my Big Shot.
