NATURAL BEAUTY ! FANATICAL ABOUT BOTANICAL !

Hi folks, first an apology about the shabby chic video....I had many problems trying to load the video....but i'm on the case and it will happen, just watch this space !
 The weather here today in the uk has reverted back to winter i think, its awful !!
My dear friend Jacqueline http://myscrapbasket.blogspot.com/ posted an awesome creation yesterday, which had a profound effect on me! So i set about using that
inspiration and this is happened........
I used adirondak inks, gold embossing, stamps from a bag of odds ones, lying around.
The words are from Crafty Individuals and of course my lovely Hero Arts butterfly !
You see Jacqueline, thats what your art does for me.....You are a real artist.....not a pretend ONE !   Have a thoughtful and peaceful weekend folks !!    xxxxxxx
I'm entering this into the following challenges.....

  2. Wonderful card, I love how amazingly colourful it is - the gold embossing lends it an extra depth and I particularly like the botanical theme. And having looked at Jacqueline's link, I agree, she too is another inspiring crafter. Hope you get the glitches for uploading the video sorted :) Pxx
