Such a cute image made me think of the paper as a garden of yummy flowers so, went with it... The flowers are die cut and punched from coloured vellum, punched butterflies also! I changed the colour of my adhesive lace ribbon with my Brilliance lime ink pad! (it has a shimmer to it, can't see in pic)

No, not the kind stuffed with Chicken & Cesar Salad or the woolly kind you put around your shoulders to keep you warm, mind you, the way our summer is going I think we could all do with one of those!I would like you to give your card a coat made of acetate, vellum or anything for that matter.As long as it ‘wraps’ around the outside of your card, anything goes!
I experimented a bit with this card, very pleased with the flower, It's die cut and I've coloured over with my copic markers and then blended and textured with alcohol blending solution and Tim Holtz blending thingy!
Click the images to get a close up! Instead of just sticking the flower to the front of card I decided to use adhesive Velcro dots! I think this was a first using my gromlets too! The rest of acetate is stamped with white staz on!
