Hi all , Today am posting a floral card made for a few challenges.I felt happy and excited while doing this card as it involved lots of new techniques like stamping in fabric, using dies for the first time, learning a new method of flower making and also trying out a new colour combo which I have'nt done before. Hope you all like it. 

I started off by painting a cardboard sheet with raw umber + black colour. ( coffee brown colour) I had this recollections pattern paper in my stash for a long time but now only got the opportunity to use it on a card.

The colours on this card are inspired from create something catchy challenge inspiration pic and lulupu challenge palette. 

The flowers are handmade and coloured using distress inks. For the center of the flower I used some urad dal. 

I used Martha Stewart lace die for cutting the center black cardstock  and the pattern paper. I sprayed pink mist on a oval shaped canvas cloth and stamped the sentiment on it. Then I made a banner out of sattin ribbon. The smudging effect on the ribbon is due to marker.

I wanted to display my card on a photo stand so that i can get a better picture. Since  I did not have a photo stand I used a hair clip to display my card.
