Joan's Garden Challenge

Well it's been so long since I've made anything and posted here on my blog I thought today would be a good day to start after visiting Joan's Garden blog and seeing all the beautiful cards . She has a special guest this week and the challenge is to follow the techniques she used on her card . So here's what I came up with using the tech. of stamping on pattern paper adding some glitter and distress inks as well as making a flower .I used the 6x6 pad of Prima Fairy Flora to stamp my image on and added the glitter to the flowers with a 2way glue pen.The pearls are made with the viva decor pen. Also entering this card in a challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge--Ribbon or Lace and Cropstop Challenge #34 Anything Goes.

Great card. So many elements. Did you use a die for the flower?

Such an elegant card Marilyn the colours all blend together perfectly. Such a pretty piece of lace running through it all.
