I'm back with a bright girly card

Good afternoon fellow bloggers!

Thank you for understanding about my absence from blogging. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was nice to do something different. I will have time today to go blog hopping through your blogs and see what fab creations you have made in my absence. Thanks for your time and patience and your comments. Without you all blogging wouldn't be possible.

The card today is different to what I've done before.

I have used the same embossing folder on each colour of card , pink card, gold mirror card and black co-ordinations card where afterwards I sanded the embossed part to reveal the pattern and used it as a mat for my fairy image.

I used an A5 card blank and used half and half of each embossed pink and gold mirrored card to stick on the bottom and top of the card blank. I then used border peel offs and around each half of the embossed card. I punched flower shapes out and layered to make a paper flower for the corner.

I then used flourish dies to cut through gold mirrored card and black co-ordinations card and used them to just stick under the centre black embossed card. I like this card but I'm unsure about the centre black card which I distressed by tearing at all sides.

I hope you like?
