Add a flower at PanPastel UK

Look no stamps lol! Here's my DT card for our new challenge at PanPastel UK where our theme is 'Add a flower' and I haven't used a single stamp for my card. I can't remember the last time I made a card without any stamping but i got carried away making my background with PanPastels and masks and decided i didn't want to cover it up lol.

I started with a square of white card and applied Diarylide yellow, ultramarine blue and permanent green PanPastels over a layer of white PP. I used a gorgeous prima mask and applied Paynes Grey PP around the maske adding more green and a little Permanent red to pick out the foliage and flower. Next I used Tile Texture template from Crafters Workshop and applied more Paynes Grey, Blue and a little Permanent red PP here and there. I absolutely love the effect of this template, i seem to be using it on everything at the minute .

I used some gorgeous rose lace from Chocolate Baroque and added some red chiffon ribbon. To create my flower I die cut 3 flowers using some crinoline fabric and Tattered Florals and coloured with Permanent Red PanPastel. I layered them like the grungepaper roses, curling the petals as I went along and added the flower to my card. To finish off I added some faux pearls in the corners.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy Challenge: No designer papers
Flourishes: Lace and Scallops
