Good morning to you all. ~Well, I must admit that I am a happy bunny, because we have a little rain, and I am always happy with the cooler weather. This is so much better for me, but I know that there are lots of you who want the sun back, my best friend included, hahahaha.

I would like to enter this card into the challenge over at
Open Minded Crafting Fun  Challenge #19.  ROLL OUT THE RED.

For the background I have used a RED HOLOGRAPHIC PAPER All edges have a 
SILVER CHAINLINK BORDER to highlight and add definition too.
The border panel down the centre has been created using WHITE PEARLISED card which has been punched with the Martha Stewart OPTIC DOT PUNCH and layered.
I have used the Spellbinders FLEUR DIS LIS set to make the squares using pearlised and textured card and the Flowers are D-Lites BLOOMS TWO with the addition of a Pearl for the centre.
The larger flowers are the Martha Stewart 3D WATER LILY PUNCH and have been embossed using the GARDEN SWIRL embossing folder.. In the centres I have added a large flower gemstone for added texture.
The foliage is from the D-Lites SPRIGS SET and the paper used is from the 
Me To You - WITH LOVE pad.
To complete the look I have added a SILVER HAPPY BIRTHDAY and a SILVER LUREX BOW.

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a lovely day.
Love Sandra xx
