Enjoying the sun...

Hi Peeps,

Sorry for the time between posts, have had a long awaited holiday in Lanzarote, was great to not have to cook and clean!!!!

Anyway todays card is a Birthday card i made using a Whoopsi daisy Digital Image, i cheated and printed the pre-coloured one for quickness(Naughty me!)

I Die cut (Sizzix die) the image and matted onto Brown die cut paper. Then used a sheet of rose paper from a freebie pack of paper from a craft magazine i got recently, i attached that onto a green base card.  I Die cut a scalloped circle (spellbinders Die) from patterened brown paper, attached that underneath the image.  I then used a sizzix flower die to cut a couple of flowers and used a paper flower brought, stuck a few gems in the middle, and attached them onto some die cut Leaves (sizzix). I doodled some Faux stitches around the image, and a few swirls on the corners. Finally i attached a greeting foil printed using my Craft dragon with some rainbow foil.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
