Secret Crafter #30

There's a blooming great theme this week over at the Secret Crafter
and it's been chosen by DT member {& my mate} Claire.
As its spring time Claire wanted a theme everyone could join in with, so if you haven't already guessed it, the theme this week is...
FLOWERS!
Any sort, any size, anywhere on your card!
I decided to make mine the main feature .
The bloom is one of several i removed from a giant fake flower i got in £1land
I coloured my gorjuss with copics in nice neutral colours, picking out slight highlight colours from the background basic grey and DCWV papers, which i also edge stitched with a white cotton. {practicing with my new hand held machine, hence the wonky lines lol}

I finished by adding half a prima flower to the centre bloom with again an accent coloured bling gem brad, and an "I'm Cute" brad to the bottom corner as it looked bare and empty.

Hope you like my card, thanks for visiting x
