Sunflower card (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi everyone,

This is one of my new images from the amazing Hannah Lynn and you can find her and so many other beautiful images at Crafts and Me (click on name to be taken to the store).

I have tried to shabby this card with distressing all the edges and using lots of layers. I used a clear glitter pen over her wings (which I'd copic coloured lemon) which look really pretty in real life.

I have used my favourite colour Flourish with a Bling pearls - Antique gold, some brands are too orange or too bright gold, these really are an antique gold and we have a beautiful flourish set to match. This month we're sending out orders POSTAGE FREE worldwide, please see below for more details.

Flourish with a Bling have free shipping on all orders over $20AUD for the month of April! This includes Australia and worldwide! No matter how large the order, there's no postage cost.
