Well Done Team GB

Wow, We did quite well in the Olympics don't you think? I watched more of it than I expected to and I have to say I did enjoy it. I am not a huge sports fan so I thought I would grow tired of it quickly but no it was good. With the Olympics in mind I have a little shaped card to share so here it is:

I have made the card base using my Spellbinders die so this is a little card but cute all the same. My favourite event in the Olympics was Diving so I have used this cute image from Sliekje and coloured it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I haven't used any backing papers on this one just a bit of mirror card. I have added a little bit of ribbon and a matching bow and some tiny pearls. I made the flower myself a while ago with a pUnch I think but I can't remember which one. I folded some green Candi to make the leaves for the flower. I then added my last metal Happy Birthday sentiment so I will now have to visit Ebay for more, who knows what else might fall into my basket.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paperplay - Shaped Card
