Hope you are all well.

So as you saw last week we had a new release at Ladybug Crafts Ink with Floral Delight 3...... there are some fab images in the collection and they are very different to my normal cute and cuddly bears that I love so much  but .........
The Martini image caught my eye and I loved Lyndseys card so have cased a few elements......the green and pink I really loved so I have used them on my card too ;)
The image is available in the shop for £1.75

The image was printed onto white card stock from Paper Mill Direct and coloured with Polychromo pencils.
Patterned paper - Echo Park
Twine and Bakers Twine from Stash
Self Adhesive pearls - The Hobby House
Sentiment - Craftwork cards

You still have another week to join in with the challenge - Flowers Galore...hope to see you there.
Have a great day and thanks for popping over today.
