Saying it with Flowers at Lexi's Creations

Good morning. Before I share my card with you I would like to thank everyone for the kind words I received reagrding my upset at my son moving out for the first time on Saturday and also report that the move went well . Aaron & Kerry popped in for some lunch yesterday and I managed not to shed any tears when they left so I guess things are looking up already. I will feel even better when I get their old bedroom sorted and furnished again - the emptiness really doesn't help!!
Anyways on to today's share and it is my DT card for the new challenge at Lexi's Creations and this fortnight  we would like to see your projects with
as the theme.
I have used a gorgeous Fairy Dust Crafts image - Roses

I started by creating a background to put the image onto by inking a piece of cardstock with Dusty Concorde Distress Ink and then overstamping with some Fancy Pants Swirls and Diamond images randomly with the same ink. This has then been mat & layered with co-ordinating cardstock and a touch of Glamour Dust added around the edges.
Image has been coloured with PM's.
This also used:
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers
Pearl Brad & Adhesive Pearls from stash
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards - inked
Challenges I would like to enter are:
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo Inspiration
Fabulous Friday - No Patterned Paper
Totally Papercrafts - Use a Digi

Thanks for popping over.
Have a wonderful day.
