LOC CP Flower Doily

I have created this card for the Card Patterns Challenge using Layers of Colours Flowering Gems art stamp set - it is such a pretty set and the flowers always come out beautifully in any style!

This is the sketch - very CAS, which is harder for me, but I am happy with the result!

I embossed the SU Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder swiping the Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Pad Tattered Rose over it, which gives such a  gorgeous effect!  I have had some requests for a tutorial for this technique and will be doing one in the next week - so watch this space!  LOL! 

I used a new DieCut that my DH got me  - it is called Lace Doily by Scrapping Cottage - don't you just love it!  I will be using this often - bring on those sketches with circles!  LOL!

Here you can see the added shimmer on the flowers using Kindy Glitz.

This gorgeous bow is made using satin ribbon from a RAK from my dear friend Sabrina,  I used by Bow Easy and added the flower gem.

This is for the following Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Punch 'Em
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Let's Get Punchy
Fab'n Funky - Clean and Simple
