My card for Julie's Inkspot blog candy

I decided to make a card for Julie's fab blog candy competition. All you have to do to enter is make an elegant card that includes a flower you have made yourself.


I am a huge fan of Julie's work and have been since I became a member of DoCraft's and saw her beautiful creations in the gallery.

I used a Rhonna Farrer Autumn Leaves stamp to create the background. I then stamped the central flower onto the reverse of a printed sheet of black Pink Petticoat paper and cut it out (I use Jessops Matt photo paper as it has a lovely velvety feel and is much less expensive than satin or gloss paper). The flower stamp is one I bought at a craft show and I think is a Friends stamp. I then just added some Bazzill blossoms in white on either side to finish it off.

Thanks for looking...
