May flowers

   This weeks theme for the Eureka Stamps challenge is' April showers bring May flowers'.
I created my backing paper by using part of the digi image flower border (number 14709) and repeating it. I then matted and layered it onto black and then white card.
   I embossed a piece of white card using the Cuttlebug Daisies embossing folder and then applied silver gilding wax to it. After matting it onto black card I attached it to the left hand side of my card.
   Using the flower border digi image I marked off a circle and only coloured within it. Using Spellbinders circle dies I cut out a ring of black card and attached this to the digi image to enclose the coloured portion. I then roughly cut out the image and attached it to the card using form pads.
   Lastly I used the Tattered Lace ornamental thinking of you die to create a sentiment from black card.
