MMM week 33 Flowers and leaves

Hi everyone, what a miserable drizzly day it's been here! Been to aquafit this morning and decided to spend the afternoon crafting:)
Over at Make my Monday the continuing theme is still NATURE but this week they want to see Flowers and Leaves. I shouldn't have posted my last card so quickly as it would have been just right for this challenge! Anyway this is what I came up with.


The base card is pearlised and stamped with a Darkroom Door image in Victorian Velvet DI and distressed with Spun Sugar and Pumice Stone DI. The frame is a cut and emboss frame that has just been embossed, the centre removed and Victorian Velvet and Pumice stone sponged on top. The flower is a Papermania build a flower stamp set that I stamped in Versafine grey ink and coloured with the same DI inks.The centre of the flower I put a blob of silicone glue and pushed lots of yellow seed beads into it. The leaves are from the same set and coloured with PM's, shaped and attached with silicone glue. The sentiment is from the same set as well and matted on card inked to match. I added some pink pearls within the frame.
I'm also entering my card into the Crafty Cardmakers challenge which is to use beads on a project.
Thanks for taking the time to visit it's much appreciated and a big welcome to my new followers:)
