Sketch Saturday Challenge #21

I've stepped out of my comfort zone a little with this card, and have used a gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamped image ('Reflective') sent to me by the lovely Cathy. The papers I've used are by K&Co, and I've torn them using a tearing ruler by Fiskars, to soften the edges. I stamped some flourishes using stamps by Hero Arts ('Fantastic Flourishes') in the corners as I felt it was looking a little plain. The silk flowers are by Papermania.

Oh I love what you have done with the papers - I have swirl stamps and never know what to do with them. The image is beautiful (but I would say that!!) and you have coloured her beautifully.
A stunning card Helen.
