Flowery Pretty Card

Fancied making a really pretty card last night but something that wasn't pink. I found one last piece of this beautiful Basic Grey paper in my stash and it all went from there. This is one of my all time favourite Basic Grey papers, it's so beautiful (I think!). I decided to make an easel card as I haven't made one for ages and I love the style. Making this card was brilliant relaxation for me after looking after 2 boys with chicken pox all day. It's for my SIL for her birthday.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges if I may:


Cardstock - white is from the Papermill Shop and teal green is Bazzill Basics from stash
Paper - Basic Grey, do you know I can't remember which range, think it's Urban Prairie?
Image - Daisy from Sugar Nellie but given to me by my lovely friend Tams xxx. Coloured with Promarkers
Fabric flowers - pressie from my friend Mel xxx
Pearl brad - Quixotic Paperie
Button - Basic Grey
Ribbon - from stash
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Green dew drops - Tabbycrafts
Ladybird charm - Quixotic Paperie
Embroidery thread - DMC (used for stitching, hanging ladybird charm and threaded through button)
Stickle Icicle glitter glue - used for flower centres on image
Tools - Woodware leaf punch, Papermania stitching template, Dovecraft paper piercer, Memento Bamboo Leaves Dew Drop inkpad
Thanks for looking x
