Petal Lu - £10 selection of blossoms

A good friend of mine has started to make CAS (Clean and Simple) cards and she has really inspired me to try it as I adore what she has made so far so I thought I would give it a go for this challenge using some of the beautiful flowers from Petal Lu:

Now I've used a lot of flowers in my time but I've got to tell ya, these flowers from Petal Lu are just exquisite!  They are just so delicate but so, so beautiful, I WILL DEFINITELY NEED MORE!

The recipe for the card is as follows:

Flowers:  Petal Lu
Border Die:  Cheery Lynn - Mesh Hearts (Vertical) Border
Stamp:  Papertrey Ink - Mega Mixed Messages
Self-Adhesive Rhinestones:  The Hobby House

And that's it as they say - a CAS card for me.

Thank you for stopping by.
