Flowers for mum

This one is quite different for me with no digital image as the focal point.  Every now and then I try a card like this - and - I'm pleased to say I may be improving :)

Sooooo... the papers I used are from Lemoncraft - House of Roses.  All the edges were distressed then I also used some Distress Ink from Tim Holtz in Antique Linen on the edges.  The butterflies are also cut from the same Lemoncraft paper.

The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  There are some pearlised self adhesive gems in the bottom right corner.  I've also used some hemp twine which I can't for the life of me remember where I bought it because I've had it for so long.

The only other thing I've added is a computer generated sentiment which was cut out using a Spellbinder die, distressed, Antique Linen used on the edges and some tiny self adhesive gems added.

Hope you like what I've produced
