Glossy Flowers!

Good morning Bloggers!

Back from my holiday in Austria which was wonderful - such a beautiful country and we were so lucky with the weather, lots of sunshine. It's a miserable day here so, as Bob is at golf,  I thought I would spend some time crafting.  This is a card I have just made using colours that are a bit different for me. Hope you like it.

The background is created using a  Splodge Away  mask and Distress Inks.  Then I used a stamp at the corners and edges from a very old set of flourishes that I have.  The flowers are from a Hobby Art clear set and have been coloured with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. The greeting is from the same set of stamps.  I have used Glossy Accents to give them a shine and put black glitter in the centres. Leaves are from a Woodware punch.  Finished off with a Gold Pearl Pen for extra effect.

Thank you for dropping by.

Love Di xx
