For a Friend

Today I am sharing a birthday card that I have made for a friend.
I was just having a play around with some alcohol inks
but wanted to keep the design simple.

I wanted to have flowers to cheer her up
as she has just had a major op
so I decided on putting some panels across the front,
and just stamping some different flowers
from a stamp set that I won earlier this year.
The stampset is from Hot Off The Press
with a crackle stamp and some leaves for a finishing touch.
 Oh...and a little bling!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges ~
