Big Flower!

Good evening everyone, I'm a bit late in the evening with this one but I wanted to enter the Creative Inspirations Wednesday challenge which is for a project using pink and cream.

I'm not sure why I added another photo because I think you can probably see the layering in the first photo lol! In real life the card is not as pale as it looks here and the buttons match the DP from K&Co and the flower which is Stackies from Polka Doodles

I distressed the edges of the papers and also added Distress Ink in tattered rose. You might be able to see that I've added some tattered rose to the flower layers and the sentiment as well.

This card should some other challenges too :-

Truly Scrumptious :- Sketch and buttons and bows.

Allsorts :- Distressed plus buttons and a bow.

Creatalicious challenge :- No stamped images.

I quite like this card! I love the DP and I think the flower worked quite well but you can always tell me if it is rubbish. constructive criticism is alway welcome. Wouldn't do if I thought all my work was wonderful. I'm more likely to think my cards are not very good actually. But probably a lot of us are guilty of that, aren't we?

I'm off to post this and enter the challenges and finish off my Tesco order.
