Better late than never!

Oh my good gosh.
Is that the time? Is it really the last day of January already?
Mind you looking at how many fabulous people have died this month I think I am glad it is February tomorrow - what about you?
Anyhoo, I digress.
I had this card made a while ago now.
It was for my Mum's birthday on 23rd but forgot to post it on the Clarity Challenge which is Flowers.
What a numpty!!
Anyway, here is my entry.
I used three plates on this one.
First off, I placed my flowers using the Blooming Peonies plate.
Next I added the Woven Background
and lastly for the plates I used one of the line sentiment border plates:
.... to add the sentiment.
Then I did all the whitework and coloured in the woven background with my Distress Ink Pens.
I added a bit of colour to the flowers, although looking at the photos it doesn't really show up very well but it is there, honest.
I promised myself I would try and enter as many challenges over at Clarity as I possibly could this year.  After all, the more you practice the better you get right??
Oh yes, and if you are interested in any or all of the items I have used you can find them all over on the Clarity Website by clicking on any of the links I have added.
Don't worry either if you want just one of the items that are advertised in say a pack of two - just give them a ring and they can sort you out - such a helpful bunch of staff they are, every single one of them.
So, off to do a bit more crafting now.
