Make My Monday.. Flowers and Leaves

Morning everyone, hope you had a good weekend and are raring to go .. at crafting any way lol.
This week at Make My Monday,  still under the main theme of Nature we would like  to see some
flowers and leaves.
 This is mine...hope you like it.
I used Anemone corner from IndigoBlu as my main image stamped onto water colour card.. The flowers are coloured with Whispers Strokes... a favourite of mine again at the moment.  I then stamped onto vellum with Versamagic and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer, Viola Black Aurora.. its a bit darker than I wanted but decided to continue with it. I coloured the back of the vellum image with whispers again and attached to the card with Pin flair glue. As the vellum is coloured it curls and so gives shape and depth.. mind you it curled the wrong way.. ha ha  worked out ok in the end.
I distressed and inked the edges of the card with Dusty Concord DI and mounted onto another distressed card slightly bigger...  and so on and so
 The DP is from the Essence of Nature CD by Chocolate Baroque (formally Elusive Images) the flowers were blinged up with Glamour dust
Added a bit of bling, ribbon, a tag sentiment and a couple of punched leaves.
The ribbon looks quite blue in the photograph but it is lilac.
As usual I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to leave comments on your lovely work.
 I was so impressed with all the sceneic entries last week .. you were amazing ladies!.. don't think there were any males ;) It was really difficult to choose just three..
 I'm out early this morning meeting up with three friends for a shopping and lunch trip to Chester.
See you later.
 take care
