Happy Mother's Day Black and Purple card

Hi everyone,

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend. My company, Flourish with a Bling, had a stall at the Pakenham Picture to Page Craft show this weekend and it was so much fun, I met so many wonderful crafters and hello to any of you that I gave my blog address to if you've come by.

This is a very sparkly card in real life but always difficult to see in photos. I have kept it fairly clean and simple. The sentiment and floral image are a freebie from a magazine's CD-rom and so I'm not sure of the brand anymore, sorry I always like to give you a link to the company's website.

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout May, the only items not discounted are the already amazingingly priced value packs, everything else is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! If you're order is over $200AUD we will pay half the shipping (international orders).
