Debut card for Sassy Crafts DT

Sassy Crafts have a weekly challenge for their DT, published on Wednesdays, and which everyone is invited to join. This week's theme is 'Thinking of You', which is highly appropriate for me at the moment. Sadly, I have a number of friends at the moment who all seem to be going through difficult times. This card was planned before the DT challenge was published, but happens to fit right in with it. I'm sure the recipient won't mind if I use it for a double purpose.

I hope she likes it.
Recipe
  • I have taken just a portion of the lovely Sarah Kay stamp, Rose's Garden, as when you isolate her pretty head, she looks quite pensive.

  • The white panel she is mounted on is embossed using the Cuttlebug 'Floral Fantasy' embossing folder, and the DP is from the DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies Mat Stack.

  • The smaller flowers are Primas from a bag of petals, like THESE. The gold flower is from stash, and you can purchase Junkitz flowers (like the large green petals on my card) from HERE.

  • Vellum, holographic heart stickers, ric rac, brads and gems from stash, but there are a wide selection of brads and ribbons available HERE.
    Have also blinged just about everything with Stickles.

    Phoneline still isn't fixed ~ I've snuck onto the work pc! Thanks for the Sky tip, but I haven't had it plugged in for about 5 years after a similar experience!
