Flowers and mistakes!

Hi there. Another weekend nearly over but at least I've managed one card at last. I was surfing about this morning and one thing leads to another and these lovely freebies popped up here. Lovely web site with a great range of downloads which I shall be looking at shortly. It's been ages since I did any cutting out and it shows but it passed the time quite nicely. The flowers were already coloured so I just used a Stardust clear pen to add some sparkle in the centres and round the edges of the petals. The lovely paper is just punched with an SU scalloped border punch. The centre of the flowers are just dollops of liquid pearls which were wet when the photo was taken. My usual crappy photo taking doesn't show it at it's best!

Mistake was the embossed centre panel which I put through my Sizzix back to front and as it was the only piece of cream pearl card I had I decided to leave it debossed Not decided on a sentiment yet - just have to see what occasion comes along first.

Thanks for looking and hope you've all had a good weekend.

Liquid pearls, aren't they fun?! I am still trying to figure out my liquid pearls, I bang them I poke them, I still get spikey pearls LOL!

Hugs, Fred
