1 card 2 challenges

I've managed to complete 2 challenges with this card.
The first on Cute Card Thursday was quite simple - make a Valentine's card. On the Lilli of the Valley challenge we were given a sketch to work to.


I've embossed the front of the card with D'vine swirls from Cuttlebug and covered the join with a piece of card with my sentiment and a ribbon attached.

The flowers are Primas with seed beads in the centres and the images are from an unmounted set of stamps bought very cheaply sometime last year but not used before.

The ribbon is spotted organza from Ribbon Oasis and the sentiment is a stamp from Hampton Arts.

Gorgeous Sue. What a great idea to use seed beads in the centre of the flowers looks much more delicate than a brad! xx
