If only her petals curled up a little more...

Today’s card is for the second twin and features another Flower Portrait image from Simply B Stamps, this one is Lilli.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  I used a lovely piece of lace for the rectangle element and my new Dewdrop Circle die to frame the pretty image.

For inspiration on my embellishments I’ve used the bingo board at Cards und More.  I’ve selected the diagonal top right to bottom left and have flowers on my image and as embellies, lots of pink and some ribbon roses.

Over at Allsorts they are looking for pearls and gems and I’ve used both to finish embellishing my card.  I framed the sweet image with pearls and added some pearls as stems to the flower in the corner as well as nestling some pearl topped pins among my floral embellies.  Finally to add a bit of glam to the image I’ve given her a necklace using Bitty Gems I coloured up to match the image.
