Sweet Blossom

Hi there, its the first day of my week off work today and I've had a lovely crafty morning :-)
Its so cold outside Its perfect weather to bunker up and craft. As a change from Christmas cards, todays card share is an 18th birthday card for my son's girlfriend, using Sweet Blossom from Wee stamps

After making so many Christmas projects it was a lovely change to make a flowery card. The bps are all from Raspberry Road Designs, distressed with a craft knife and matted on cream card with a MS punched border. The image was coloured with promarkers and distressed with spun sugar distress ink. I've added paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and some silk flowers from my stash. I stamped the '18' using stamps from Crafters Companion using gold stazon on shrink plastic and heated it to shrink before attaching it with silicone glue and adding a rose pink seam binding bow. To finish off I added some faux pearls with a viva pearl pen.

Here's another pic to show the detail a little better

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday: Its just a number
Daisy Doodles: Something sweet with a digi
Sir Stampalot: Bingo challenge (my line is: punch flowers pearls)
