Crafts & Me DT Card...........Forever Rose

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well the winds have finally died down now & mr sunshine has popped out to say hello............hello (waving) lol.
Today I am here to show you a card, I'm running late so I'm sorry about that :0(
Now I know I'm on the Rockin' Rubbah team but I decided to try work through my growing pile of coloured images in my box & this image is the very first digi I brought from Crafts & Me Store, I was sooooo excited that Teresa was releasing digi' hubby was at fishing & I phoned him squealing down the phone in excitement...........poor bugga its no wonder his hearing is going a little lol.
Anyway now dont laugh but this started as a CAS card, however I saw all my lovely flowers drooping their heads cus they were sad so I just had to use a couple.........just a few!!!!
Here is 'Forever Rose' by no other than Hannah this artist!!!

She is coloured with Copics but as she was coloured in a while ago I cant remember the colours sorry.
Now Wild Orchid has a challenge of embossing 3 layers so thats what started this card.

I have dry embossed 2 layers & heat embossed the image with UTEE

I have used A4 light sage card & a dark sage green card & IRL it has a beautiful shimmer to it.

All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts Store & I've sprayed them all with 'Pearl' glimmer mist.
The leaves I cut out using Marainne dies on the light sage card.

Why not pop along to the Crafts & Me Store blog to see inspiration every day & see latest updates.
Well thats about it from me I better go carry on making Beef Goulash soup......mmmm it keeps my lot happy they have nagged me for it for 2 days bless them lol.
Well I will be round soon to do some blog hopping. Until then thank you sooooo much for stopping by it means a lot to me as you all know. Huge huggles to you all.
Tatty bye xoxoxoxox
Challenges I'm Entering..............
