Where Flowers Bloom

Hi all... hope you are all well and enjoying the Olympics.
First of all I would like to thank my new followers for getting me past the 100 mark!

I haven't been creating for over a week.  We have been having a few things done around the house, so I've been keeping out of the way.

So...just a quickie from me today.  I have created a card using the Flourishes 'Botanical Bookplates Vol. 2' set of stamps, some Spellbinders, a Sizzix embossing folder, distress inks, some bling and just a little glamour dust....and I coloured my flowers with Pro Markers.
Thought I should just add, that I used the whole of the embossing folder for the front of my card.  I fussy cut around it, and then adhered it to a folded card, cut to size.

Here are the ingredients...
Flourishes - Botanical Bookplates Vol. 2
Spellbinders - Fancy Framed Tags 2 - Labels Twenty Two
Pro Markers - Grass, Leaf Green, Pastel Blue and Tea Green
Sizzix - Embossing Folder Hearts & Vine
Distress Ink - Salty Ocean

Thanks for stopping by x
