Whoopsi Daisy Flowers Galore

Flowers Galore - that's the theme for this week's challenge over at Whoopsi Daisy. HOWEVER, if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image it's always Anything Goes. Please come and join us. The image is from sheet 346 and is available here.

I used a small card blank from Craft UK. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and cut with a Spellbinders nestie. I matted it on to a scalloped nestie in orange pearlescent card from Papermill. The flowery backing paper is from a Papermania pad of 100 papers that I've had for years. I matted that on to plain orange card. The small roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the beautiful flowers with the pearl centres are from my friend Nataliya . The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - maybe I should have reduced it in size? Too late now, it's well and truly stuck down. I smudged the edges with two shades of Distress Ink.

With the help of all my friends, relatives, crafting and blogging buddies I'm feeling as if I'm slowly making my way forward. I've had hundreds of emails and messages of support and I'm counting my blessings as I know this is what Eric would have wanted. Thank you all.

I'm entering my card in to the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - My Sentiments Exactly
I Love Promarkers - Autumn Colours
Paper Pretties - Flowers
Whimsy Inspiration - Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
Simply Create - Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles - Flowers
