Life is Beautiful

I love how versatile the new release sets from Penny Black are - this card is created using an image designed by my dear friend Nina of NinaB Designs, called Petal Party


Today I have gone for a monochromatic look - it works so well with flowers - don't you think!?


The flowers and leaves have peen popped up onto foam tape and layered into the Spellbinders Parisian Motifs Shapeabilities®, the Classic Edges One Edgeabilities has been cut twice, using the Classic Decoratove Inserts Three Edgeabilities has been adhered down the centre of the  patterned paper (from my scraps pile on my desk)


Finishing off with a sentiment from Petal Party set from Penny Black, some pleated Seam Binding and those gorgeous Want2Scrap pearls.

This card is for the following challenges:
