Julie's Blog Candy

Julie is celebrating her first year of blogging and is offering some fab candy. She has asked that you create an elegant card and make a flower of your own to embellish it. This is my creation, hope it fits the bill.

I used:

Glitter Girls embossing board to create the flower (the card was put through a Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder first)
Cuttlebug folder for the background
Sentiment is HOTP - stamped with a Versamark pad and then chalked
Grosgrain ribbon
Spacer, brad and square beads from stash

I've been a great fan of Julie's cards since discovering her gallery on the Do-craft site. She is a great source of inspiration. If you want to seen some wonderful creations, go check out her blog.

(p.s. I've been neglecting visiting my favourite bloggers recently, I'm struggling a bit to keep up with everything at the moment - poor time management on my part I'm sure - anyway, apologies for this, I haven't forgotten you all.)
