OSAAT #173 - Favourite Things

This is my card for the challenge over at One Stitch at a Time - Favourite Things. I've used my favourite things: flowers, dies and ribbon plus some faux gems, not forgetting glitter card!

My image this week is by Alipeeps over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet and it's called Spring Flowers. I printed it on to another of my favourites, ivory pearlescent paper by Papermill. I coloured it with Promarkers and cut with a Spellbinder grand nestie circle. I used Distress Ink on the edges so that it would stand out against the Hideway glitter paper from a pad by First Edition. That paper was matted on to bright orange card by Papermill. The card blank is a large cream square by Craft UK. I used my latest Memory Box die, Bella Bouquet, to cut the flowers which were also coloured with Promarkers. The orange satin ribbon is the last of my orange ribbon from Australia. I generated the sentiment on the computer and matted that on to orange card before adding some faux gems from JJD Cards.

The sponsor this week is Creative Craft World with 3 Promarkers for the winner. Please check out the OSAAT blog for details of prizes.
