My first post for Crafts & Me.....Forever Rose

Good morning, altho by the time I've finished typing it will be afternoon lol. I want to say a huge Thank you to everyone for all your kind comments & messages my eyes filled up a few times yesterday I tell ya, you are all awesome in every single way...huge hugs to each of you <>
Well I did my 1st ever posting over at Crafts & Me I was so nervous my ickle fingers were shaking when I was typing. I did remember not ot babble on like I do in posts on my blog so hopefully I havn't bored anyone lol.
I will put my creation on here now for you all to see. I am using 'Forever Rose' digi stamp by Hannah Lynn again which you can get here. I love this digi image I think she is so beautiful but the main reason I've done this 1 again is just to show how versatile she is....& how many looks she can have...
I have made something different & this I will also be doing a tutorial for very soon...I will keep the chit-chat to a mininum as there are a lot of piccies lol.

On the tissue box I layered the image with extra thick embossing powder & a wee bit of glitter & cracked it here & there.... it also helps protect the image I think. I wish you could see how truly beautiful this image looks IRL. She is coloured with Promarkers & Sakura gel pen to the rose to add a bit more sparkle lol.

Its for my step-mum to say thanks for all she does for us so below is the thank you verse thats on the other side of the box.

I have embossed around the top to help protect the card when pulling tissues out, it was embossed with Lilac embossing powder whcih you can get from here of course!!! Told you I loved this shop lol. By the way the Mother's Day pink embossing powder is so pretty & delicate just thought I would tell you cus b4 we know Mothers Day will be here!!!

Soz about the chopping off of the bottom of the card lol.

Well thats the last of the pics, I will give you the list of amterials used now & the colour of Promarkers....not many used here lol.
Materials used & links.... 
Forever Rose digi image & embossing powder - Crafts & Me
Websters Pages, flowers & Promarkers - Crafty Emma's Store
Sentiments - Whimsy Stamps (I also got my signature from here months ago lol its took me that long to remember I had it luckily I was tidying up my digi image folder the other day to put all my crimbo images into 1 folder & I found it as well as my watermark which will be added one day hopefully lol)
Pearls, large flower on lid of box & stickle glitter on flowers are all from my stash.
Lace trim was crimbo prezzie off my step-mum.
