Rosie Posy

Hello lovely peeps. Hope you're having a great weekend.

Just a quick card this evening which I've made using one of the images from the retired Lili of the Valley art pads 'Party and Cake'. My hands are a bit gyppy at the moment so I'm limiting my colouring in where possible.

For inspiration I used Sketch #5 from the old Lili of the Valley blog
and added the flowers/ribbon in the corner.

The two main papers are from the Butterfly Kisses collection from Nitwit. I adjusted the brightness of the dotty one before printing but I'm thinking it's too pale now I'm looking at it on the finished card. The small scrap of check paper is from the Country Meadow collection and the greeting is one of the stamps in the 'Simply Sophisticated' set from Lili of the Valley.

The gorgeous paper flowers are from Prima and I've added Creative Expressions dazzlers for the centres.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
