The Beauty You Bring to the World

I am still not being a very good blogger friend to many - just feeling a bit 'off' at the moment. Lots of personal things going on that are accumulating and making me feel a bit low at times.

My card for today I made using the gorgeous Rosie from Sugar Nellie available from Funky Kits.
First I want to share this flower with you - made it using a really cheap lace I found somewhere or other and all I did was cut a circle of card, add some DST then wound the lace around in a spiral to form the flower, added a gem and hey presto.

 Then thought I would tease you with a close up of Rosie - she is such fun to colour - used my Flexmarkers here and they worked a treat.

The scalloped card I got from our local The Range - love the look of them but hard to locate here in Enfield. The DP is a freebie from Milton pad; matted onto grey cardstock; gingham is from Pink Petticoat (loving ALL Liz's papers); Gems are from my stash and the sentiments says.......

thank you for the beauty you bring to the world

...and here is my finished card.

I am entering this into the following challenges:~

The Play Date Cafe No 106 - Grey, Yellow and Pink;
Charisma Cardz Cutesy;
