Day 3 of Sneaky peeks at the Gorgeous Florals new release at the Rusty Pickle.

Hello all,
Edited:  It seems that Michelle, the owner of the Rusty Pickle has been having alot of personal problems recently and as such has decided to make the Rusty Pickle a free digi site.  She will be making all her images available for free download just as soon as she can.
This is the third and final day of sneaky peeks at those fabulous new releases at the Rusty Pickle.  All the girls in the design team chose the images they wanted to preview and I know that some of the girls have posts on their blogs today too.  I know that Ali at Crafty Dragons has a post for this new release today but I'm not sure about the others that were due to post today due to a few problems at the moment.  So without further babbling from me here is the card I made using the Flourish Leaves image - available in the store as a free download - hopefully already there but if not it soon will be.
I coloured in the image using glitter pens and ordinary pencil.  I used pearlescent chalks around the edge in pale lilac and pale lemon and the DP are all from the same pack of papers from Papermania called Amethyst Infusion. 

The three purple brads are from my stash and the ribbon is a handmade double bow using my bow easy (takes some mastering but well worth the effort).  The sentiment is one I have had in my stash for a very very long time and I think I bought it from Readicut (can't be sure though as I've had them so long).  I used the current sketch over at Unscripted Sketches (not used one before but will be back to have another go).  I will also enter this card into the current challenge at Raise the Bar where Joni wanted you to use your forgotten stash (the older the better apparently!)
