    Another absolutely stunningly beautiful card, your flower and bow are so luxurious and those butterflies look ready to almost take flight.

    1. Hi Mavis, lovely to have you visit my blog, Welcome!. I hope I am answering your question properly if not come back and tell me. Normally I colour my flowers with Distress inks, but the burnt orange and mirri card I had in my crafty stash.

  7. Good morning Tina,
    See i knew that your beauty wasn't just inside but outside as well. Your card is beautiful flower and the embossing is so deep that i wonder if you spritz it with water first before embossing to get it to be so clear. Because of the beautiful flowers that you had on a card about a fortnight ago i have just got in my gardenia dies as what beautiful flowers they turn out. A gem of a card flower, have fun,
    love and crafty hugs
    I am trying to be good and not disrupt your blog like i do in Sue's, but it is hard
    Have a great day dear friend

    1. Hi Norah, you come and disrupt me anytime you want and for as long as you like. I love reading your daily blog I'm glad you treated yourself to the gardenia dies, I love it as you cut the whole flower out in one go. Thinking of you and Rory X

  12. HELP PLEASE... I am Tina's husband Paul.... Can someone please explain where we can get some advise on Blogs...
    The bottom of this post showed 31 comments, then 16 now just 13 ...... What are we doing and are there 15 comments somewhere in the ether that we can not see....
    We don't want to miss any comments and not reply as it would appear we are being rude...
    I have very little hair left to pull out !!!!

  13. Hi Tina,
    A beautiful card! You have no need to be nervous although I understand this is a totally new experience. Just remember there must have been lots and lots of people who didn't make the grade. Be proud !
    Sorry Paul I can't help you! Blogs are way over my head. My husband doesn't really understand what a blog is! So, your ahead of him - a long way - his hair is pretty thin too! Where would we be without the love and support of our husbands? I'd be a very sad lady! I'm sure Tina feels the same.
    Love and congratulations to you both,

  14. Hi Myra

    Lovely to have you aboard my blog, you are so welcome and hope you will visit again. Thank you for even saying you don't understand computers, it doesn't make me feel quite so dim.
