I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi and welcome to all very talented friends, and visitors.

I made this card with some new free stamps that came with a craft magazine.
This I sent to a lady in the Netherlands because she won my prize on the Christmas MAWTT Challenge. 
I wanted to keep it quite flat for the postage. 

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I stamped my flowers with Versa Mark water mark ink pad
I then heat embossed my background
flowers with Sea Foam White embossing powder.
Then I inked it all with Worn Lipstick DOI.
I stamped another flower and leaves then I inked them too, and cut them out for the centre.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge.

Oh its so pretty, the white embossing works a treat with the pink and green, beautifully put together x

A fab prize and this beautiful card too! This is one lucky lady. Love this CAS card (well, with your usual layers, this one is CAS!) I like how you've created the background using creamy images of the focal image. Which is just stunning! And your color choices for the focal image really make this pretty flower stand out. Like the little 'jewels' that decorated the sponged circle. The center behind the flower & leaves just glows. Well done, Miss Jenny. Sure hope you are on the mend. TFS & Hugs

Wonderful idea to replicate the main image as the background, the flowers are beautiful and the soft green is lovely with the pink.
