Digital Tuesday Challenge #31 - Flowers



Hi everyone, well my order of DST has arrived so now I can play again yippeeee!
Today's card is for the Digital Tuesday Challenge, which this week has 'Flowers' as it's theme.
These gorgeous Cala Lillies are Crafty Ann's digi stamps. I love these flowers, they always look so delicate and romantic, it's such a shame that a lot of people only associate them with funerals.
I've teamed them up with some lace and delicate 'lace effect' papers and tried to keep the whole look very simple and understated, at least I hope that's what I achieved lol!

Card Details:
* Image - Crafty Ann's Digi Stamps 'Cala Lillies'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Joanna Sheen 'Lace Papers'
* Sentiment - Woodware 'Circular Greetings'
* Nestabilities - Scalloped Circles
* Everything else from my stash

Following my recent craft 'spending spree', most of the things have now arrived so watch this space for lots of new bits and bobs appearing on my cards. I've invested in some new ink pads, Nestability 'labels' and lots of little bits and bobs that I've had my eye on for ages such as glamour dust and glitter glass. I seem to have ordered lots of punches including some to make little corners and Martha Stewart's 'Valentine Hearts' (I've been wanting this forever!!)
Now, any of you that visit me regularly will know that I just LOVE using my Promarkers. In fact, since I first discovered them I rarely use anything else, but that may all change soon. I've ordered myself some Distress Inks as I love the results I see on people's blogs from these. Quite how well I'll get on with them remains to be seen!
Thanks again to all those lovely people that take the time to leave me comments, it means so much to me.

This is so pretty. I agree it is a shame that they are associated with funerals, but I have a sympathy card to make and this just reminded me that I have a cala lillie rubber stamp that I could use. So thanks for that :)
I love the lace and papers, it all just looks so delicate.
Thanks for joining us at Digital Tuesday this week.
