Another card for blog spot challenges

I must have got my crafty mojo back as I'm on the 2nd card for the day :-)


The flower is a product my Creata and it's a shape forming set which includes flowers and butterflies, basically you mold them using a heat gun and they give a brilliant 3D affect. I then punch a hole in the middle of the flower and secured with a DoCraft brad.
The background paper is also by Creata
Butterfly die is by Joy Crafts
Flourish is by Prima.
Stamp is a digi stamp by Mo Manning.
Silk Ribbon I bought from Create and Craft.
Mirror Board is from Creata,
