Flowers and Swirls at Allsorts

 Good morning. Thank goodness it's the weekend - my DH is due home later today after a week away in New York :-) I have really missed him this week :-(
Anyways as it's Saturday that means it's time for a new challenge over at Allsorts and this week the lovely Jill has picked


We have two fabulous sponsors this week:

Please see the main challenge blog for the full details of the prizes.

The DT were very lucky to get to choose an image from Ruth at A Passion for Stamps
to work with and I chose 'Cosmos' - available here

I printed the image out twice so I could decoupage it after colouring with PM's
The base card was made using the largest scalloped circle grand nestie - scored and folded in half.
The image is mat and layered onto deckled edge grand nestie ovals - I left the largest mat in the nestie and then inked with Dusty Concorde DI to create a faux mat.
My swirl is a Sizzix bigz die and I added some co-ordinating buttons.
I also added a border - using Martha Stewart floral border punch and a satin edged ribbon and bow.
The Design Paper is from Funky Hand 'Hearts and Flowers' download available here.
Sentiment - Whimsy Stamps
