I Miss You card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi everyone,

Here's my second (and last) card today, this one is using a gorgeous image from Saturated Canary. I fussy cut her and the flowers/ground out to add her to this beautiful patterned paper. I was really pleased with how it came out until my sister pointed out there is an upside down bird on the papers which made him look like he'd died, oh dear. So if you see the card below that's how it looked so I had to add some butterflies over him hehe. I also decided to change the sentiment as I used dimensional magic on the other one and the writing ended up a bit blurred from it.

I have also used pearls from my company, Flourish with a Bling. We are having a fantastic sale this month - 50% off!! This includes everything except the value packs so I hope you'll go check out our website (click here) and see if you can't live without some of our gorgeous products hehe.
