Back to normal! Gray, cloudy weather and I made a pre-order for some new products. I have a card today but I am so disappointed in how the photo came out. I used the same Hero Arts  Paper Layering Die I sued on my last card  and sponged pinks, greens and soft reds on it. Then I added Perfect Pearls over it and that produced the shine that messed up the photo so you can't see the colors. I used a piece of pattern paper under it and soft PTI green cardstock. I added a few sequins that came from somewhere and embossed in clear powder the greeting from Avery Elle. It is a birthday card for my sister in law. I am going to enter this card in
anything-goeshttps://a2zscrapbookingblog.com/2017/01/01/a2z-scrapbooking-january-2017-challenge/. Be kind to one another.

So soft and pretty, Brenda. Lovely sponging on your beautiful flower which goes so well with the backing paper.

OMGoodness, this is a stunning card Brenda!!!! I love the color combo and I love the shimmer on your flower! Shimmer and glitter and foil papers are so hard to get a good photo of but I think you got a good one of yours. I love that paper you used too, so pretty and delicate looking. You did great Brenda and I'm sure your SIL will love this card the same way we all love it! Hugs my friend, Brenda

I feel your pain in trying to take photos in this dull and drab weather. Love the pretty flower in the centre. Nearly at the end of the bathroom renovations. Feel like I have been a war zone for the past month with the added tsuma of next doors BT saga. hugs Mrs A.

I think it shines beautifully and the pastel petals look smashing. I like the way you've layered the petals over the pretty wash border too. Love that border treatment also. The colors mix nicely together for a soft delicate lady's card! TFS & Hugs
