Where Flowers Bloom!!

Sunday already... Where does the time go and to be robbed of an hour too.. he he.. I completely forgot the clocks went forward last night!!

On to my card... As soon as I saw this image I fell in love with it. It's just stunning and is from the very talented Paulette over at "Create with TLC" and would you believe this is actually a freebie and to get your hands on it you can click here.

This image it just perfect for a stunning black & white card!!

I have used a blank 6x6 card, black card and white card from my stash. I took the image in to my editing programme and resized to fit my card and added a black border.

Simply matted some black card stock straight on to card base then took the main image and cut out and matted on to white card stock.

The flower itself has been decoupaged (printed several copies of image) and then finished the flower by giving it a light coating of glitter using my spray and sparkle which you can get from Crafters Companion.

Unfortunately the picture does not show the lovely sparkle on the flower :(

To finish the card I added a lovely white ribbon and some gems both of which were from my stash.

My inspiration for the card came from a very good friend, unfortunately she has not been well recently and I think this sentiment just says it all "Where flowers bloom so does hope".

I am entering this card in to the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog - For A Special Lady (my friend)
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Ribbons,Pearls,Rhinestones & Flowers
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Monochromatic

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a look :)
