Not my usual sort of card

A few weeks ago I saw and fell in love with the gorgeous Flower Maiden images from A Day for Daisies, I purchased them all and set about making a card, somehow or other I went off on a completely different tangent from my normal card-making style, and this is what I ended up with.
I wasn't sure about it, but it has received lots of lovely compliments from visitors who had spotted it sitting on my mantelpiece among the other cards I've made recently, so I thought I would finally get it blogged.
I layered up papers, and wording from the digital kit I used, before printing and adding to the card front, I coloured up the flower maiden and then fussy cut her, shaped her a little and fixed to card with foam pads, then I punched stars from black glitter card, and that was it - all done.

Thanks for popping in and taking a look,

It may not be your usual Colette... but oh-em-gee as they say... IT'S GORGEOUS! I also fell in love with those images and they sit in my computer waiting for me to print and colour... I think you may have just inspired me! LOVE how you've styled this one... looks so good around the image.. and of course.. hearts... just PERFECT!

I fell in love with this card as soon as I saw it - it is just so beautiful. If it were mine, I'd frame it and hang it on a wall so I could look at it every day! Absolutely gorgeous!!! x
