Say it with flowers.


This card is for the St Lukes Charity Card Challenge, a new monthly challenge where you can actually send the card you make, by freepost, to be sold for funds for the St Lukes Hospice in Sheffield, please check out the challenge as it is such a worthy cause.For the first theme they have asked for Flower cards, I decided to emboss the layers using an embossing board, I stamped a Whiff of Joy sentiment then added lots of punched flowers, I used white pearlescent card throughout and changed the flower colours with distress inks. The card is really pink and white not pink with a tinge of lilac as my camera turns it.

Maureen - this is absolutely gorgeous. I recognise the embossing :) You've taken it to a different level, so very pretty. I love the sentiment, and that it fits inside the central star! Thanks for joining us for the first St Luke's Charity Card Challenge. I do hope you'll play again in May!
