CES Challenge DT Card..............Royal Flower

Well its me again for my 2nd post. Scroll down for my Sweet Stampin card or click here.
Firstly I would like to say a huge thankyou for all your lovely comments you all have really made me smile & from the bottom of my heart I thankyou. I am sooo sorry if I'm behind on commenting as well as been stuck at the hospital yesterday for a couple of hours it was also my sons memorium he would of been 21 years it was a bit of a rough day.....but I have the most amazing support from my hubby & my children who I love to bits, they really are awesome & the best. Then I have you my crafting friends who always say the sweetest loveliest things & you really do cheer me up & make my day. I even go back to read them again when I need cheering up lol you all rock I love you all.
Right now that I've droaned on I will get onto my post cus its time for
This week it was my turn to choose the challenge & cus of the week it fell on you will understand my choice
Angels & Fairies
I have a huge thing for angels & fairy like things, things that live in the fantasy world like me lol.
For me this was hard as I have sooo many of these type stamps but I decided to go for one of my new ones that came the other day cus she is so beautiful.

This is 'Royal Flower' by Caron Vinson which you can get from here these are gorgeous stamps I ended up buying half of them lol. The links I will add at the bottom. For this stamp I actually brought the plate so the sentiment also came with it which I think is lovely.

Yes I used some gorgeous blue seam binding I'm addicted to this stuff. I made a double bow & then attached a gorgeous flower.

The smaller flowers are actually seperate but I put a white on top of a blue & stuck a gem from my stash in the middle, I thought it helped break the blue up a bit. I love these Gardenia's.

Lastly a close-up of miss pretty lol. She is coloured with Copics & I added baby blue stickles to her wings, dress & hairband cus she deserves some sparkle. I love this stamp & she was soooo easy to colour.
Papers are Websters & these along with all the flowers & the scalloped card you can get from
The stamp you can get from Sweet Pea Stamps
Blue card for matting is from Paper Mill Direct
Seam Binding I got from The Ribbon Girl you do have to be fast to buy this stuff cus it sells out verrrry quickly. 
Well thats it from me I'm off to link to some challenges & then I'm coming around to catch up with all your fantastic creations. Please do pop over to the Challenge Blog & see my teamies fabulous creations. Hope you can join us this week we look forward to seeing all of your wonderful entries.

Hi again... it's me... AGAIN. lol.
Another stunning card! LOVE the colours you've chosen. Mmmmmm and FLOWERS! Hahaha! You've got your flower fix with this one, eh? :) I'm running out of superlatives for your cards. I do like to drop by and comment on them though, so it may seem a bit samey same. I ain't lying when I tell you they're gorgeous no matter how I put it :D

Sorry to read it was your son's memorial. That's so sad, chick. And how heartbreaking about your brother too. There are no words, but my heart goes out to you, it truly does.

Take care and BIG, HUGE HUGS!
