Flowers for Mum

My second post for today is one of the cute Teddy Bo images with an armful of flowers. I wanted to keep the flower theme going so used various papers, the main ones being Country Companions Lover's Lane. I had fun with the embellishment at the bottom which is made from Wild Orchid flowers, silk leaves from Joanna Sheen, pearls and pink acrylic leaves and fabric hearts. I used a new Go Kreate die to cut the image. You're going to see a lot more of these as they are such a useful size. The sentiment was made on the PC and cut with a Nestie die. I also used a Marianne doily die and MS border punch.

oh I hate it when people ask for my honesy opinion, but this isn't going to be painful at all. Have clicked on the pic for a closer look and it looks great to me - no hard lines, all nicely blended and i don't think I'd have done anything differently
