Hope you're blooming this morning!

Good morning all

Today I have a card that was supposed to be a DT card for the challenge at

the Challenge is


but I didn't get it finished in time!

To be fair its not my week to post on MTTC DT but when I saw this image I knew it was perfect for the challenge, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it -so decided I would  go for it.  The image is one of the gorgeous new release digis over at Whimsy Stamps from

Stampart Designs by Kathryne
 and its called
 Pretty Petals2 available here

It took me ages to colour all of the flowers for this card, I printed the image twice and coloured all of the flowers - I'm not a - just because you can't see them girl!  all of the flowers are coloured under the decoupaged ones too!  The sentiment also comes in the set with the image (there are two others that say "love blooms here" that are really nice too)

I cut out the second flowers shaped them and mounted them on different sizes of 3d foam to give a variety of height and left some of the flowers just as the flowers on the original card.  I then cut a couple of the flowers to embellish the sentiment - just to tie it into the design.  i also edged all the white card with a toning pen (copic R02) just to difine the edge.  I was really pleased with this when it was finished, I didn't go overboard on the embellies as the flowers say it all on this card, I felt quite pleased with myself that everything on this card was hand made(except the pearls!)  and I had to use a really big bow to finish it off - well you always get a big bow on a bouquet of flowers don't you lol.
