This week I am lucky enough to be a GDT over at Forever Friends.  There is a great prize as they are being sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy.  The theme is 'Pastel Colours' so pop on over to the blog and see all the wonderful creations to inspire you.

I have kept to my all time favourite colour for my card.  Although I have followed the great sketch I did turn it first.  The embossed panel on the left has been distressed with ink and heat embossed with hologram EP.  The trellis has been die-cut.  The border has been punched and I added an embossed strip which I also distressed and heat sparkled.  The image is a pre-coloured one, isn't she gorgeous?  I then distressed the background with ink and ran a promarker around the edge before attaching with foam pads.  I have gone a bit overboard with the flowers but, what the heck!  The butterflies are peel-offs mounted onto parchment paper and embossed with gems added.  That's it, hope you like it, thanks for looking.
