Flowers Finally.

Here is my make using the discarded green card from the Weekend.  Again not what I had a vision of to start with. It was going to be a cream Lily!! I know, I know all the best laid plans and all that. I changed the lace to a pale green to match and am happy with the result. Also had a go for the first time at cropping a photo. I know, I know where have I been all my life. I'm normally in a rush to load the post so just point the camera  and take a shot and upload it.
Digi backing paper by 'Raspberry Road' Home sweet home 010
Flowers are 'Floral Delights' Cornflower die.
Coloured using 'Colour Box' Cat's Eye chalk ink pads
'Spellbinders'  Label 4 Nestie
Corners using Spellbinders 'Majestive  Elements' S4-383
Leaves from 'Crealies' Creative shapes CL CS 18
Britannia Word die.
Pearls and old lace from stash.

 I originally had the flowers inside the frame and the sentiment on the lace but the flowers covered up quite a bit of the backing paper and I thought the wording looked better. Close up of the cornflowers below.

Gorgeous card Mrs A - those cornflowers are a lovely touch too.

I only just started cropping piccies here too - can't see me going for feathered edges and schtuff like that for a while yet though :)
