Flower beauty

    I had printed the design paper months ago because I liked it but had never found a use for it until now. I matted and layered it onto blue-grey core'dinations cardstock and white card.
   I coloured this image called wild flower beauty from Sami Stamps using Spectrum Noir pens and cut it out using a Tattered Lace oval die. I then matted it onto an oval of the core'dinations cardstock. The flowers were die cut and embossed using Tattered Laces Emma trio set of dies and folder and having coloured them I shaped them and attached them to the rim of the oval frame. I added a bow made from narrow satin ribbon to the base of the frame and then glued 6mm pearls to the flower centres and 3mm and 1.5 mm pearls (very fiddly) to either side of the spray. Finally I attached a happy birthday peel off sentiment and two tiny bows to the opposite side of the frame.
