A little bit of Sunshine Just for You

Evening Everyone
Have you had a good day? It has been pouring with rain here, typical half term and Bank Holiday weather.
I hope that my card tonight will bring you a little bit of sunshine amongst the grey.
This was made for my friend Lorraine to give to her Sister-in-law. She asked for a feminine, pretty card with flowers and glittery things.
 The floral panel came from my bits box and was made using pigment inks and embossed resist.
 I added ribbon, lace and a diamontie ribbon slider all from my stash.
The handmade background to the right of the card was made using Memory Mist inks, cling film and a white embossed Magenta stamp.
I added a stamped and embossed border using the lovely Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel.
The flower was cut using a die and then covered with more of the Frantage powder. The swirls were cut from more of the background paper from my stash.
I know that Lorraine liked the card, I just hope that her Sister-in-Law did.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges
Sassy Studio - Dare to be Thursday challenge Add a splash. I used Memory Mists for the background which are wet.
Shelley's Images Challenge - Add some bling. Ribbon slider, gems and Frantage Embossing Enamel
Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings - Flowers and Ribbon
Crafts and Me - Lace
