Design Team Member and Parasol Card

Hi everyone, I am so pleased to have been offered to join a great new team of people over at Beyond Grey.

Why not come over and visit me at this new blog and see what I am getting up to.  The first challenge is due to come up tomorrow and for this challenge I have created the following card.  You will have to go to the blog to find out what the challenge is all about.

Please come and support me and join in the challenges on my new venture as a DT.

This card is a 9 x 6 the whole way round.  I used an embossing die (although I can't remember what it is called) which is much smaller than the panel that I used to start off with.  I am not too happy with it, but I had already started the card and I thought I would finish it off to see what it looked like.

I then die cut 3 parasols and put sky blue ribbon through the holes on the parasols. I attached 3 light blue roses (coloured with promarkers), then attached a pearl swirl to the right of the card.  I then created a large bow to put on the left hand side of the card with the ribbon going all the way round the card.  On the left hand side I put 2 (blue) lillies again coloured with promarkers.

I finished it off with a silver Congratulations at the top of the card.  It is not perfect, but these are the ones that need to be worked on.

I do hope that you like my card.
