Flower for my love

So this is the sort of girly thing that's been distracting lately from making some more guy cards.  Unky from The East Wind has given a free digi away so I thought I'd have a go and show you my first take on it.

The image is called Rose the Flower. I've chosen to do it as a Valntines style card in pinks.  The image is cut out with a Spellbinders die and edged with pink ProMarker. Here's a close up of the image for you.

The papers are from Wild Rose Studio - Antique Library, Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs - Heartfelt and Joy Crafts - Romance.  All the papers have been distressed before mounting the rest of the embellishements and image.

Embellisments used are a lace fabric heart I've had in my stash so long I can't remember where I got it, some lace from Hobby Craft, flowers and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, some white self adhesive gems, two pink hearts from a tonic solutions punch. Here's a closer 
look at the flowers.

Hope you like my take on this image.
