Picking flowers

This is my favorite ADFD digi. I remember how I loved picking flowers for my mum when I was a child, she always seemed so surprised and happy when I brought her my hand picked flowers. Now that I'm older I can undeerstand why.

I had this image in my stash, all colored up with Promarkers earlier this year, and now I found it ready to be cut to shape and glued onto a card.

I chose a purple paper with shimmer effect, dry embossed the bottom part using a freebie embossing folder. I cut a circle, used a blue DI to sponge the centre and added a sentiment in Norwegian that wotks for an congratulations occasion or birthday. Flowers from my stash.

This card is for:
City Crafter Challenge - #368 - Let's Go Outside and Play (flower picking)
Allsorts - Flower Power
Sparkles Forum Challenges - #93 Embossing - Heat or Dry (dry)
