Time for Grace (Sugar Nellie)

Good morning

I started to put together this easel card using the image Grace from Sugar Nellie and had a frustration attack after finding that I hadn't any flowers in my stash of the colour I wanted.  Time to turn to my trusted companion, the computer and a brilliant programme I have from Serif.  Eventually my frustration attack began to wain as after a bit of tweaking here and there with design, size and colour, I came up with these flowers.  After cutting them out, I scored the 'petals' just give a bit of depth, applied distress ink at the edges and fixed adhesive stones to complete them.  A stem of flowers were decoupaged at the top of the card.

Not so sure now about the sentiment on the top but oooh isn't it a good feeling to have something come together when you previously had doubts about it happening.  A bit like life really........?

Have a good day.
