Crafts & Me - On my mind.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Certain trials came to test me yesterday and so I only managed one card again!!
Today I am going out for some retail therapy.
So on to why I am here, I have this card to share which you will also find over at the Crafts & Me store blog.
There I have also posted a tutorial on how I made my rolled flowers if you`d like to scoot on over and take a peek.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges;
1.As You Like It Challenge - Fav Alcohol markers or distress inks. (quite an easy choice this time ladies, I do like distress inks for edging my papers but between the two choices for colouring it has to be alcohol markers, why..... because I love the vibrancy of the colours, the smoothness of the finish and the massive colour range you get)
2.Graph It Challenge - Week 15 - Flower power
4.The Ribbon Girls Challenge - Any image challenge - Add ribbon or lace
5.Sentimental Sundays Challenge - Challenge 254 - No sentiment
6.Crafting From The Heart Challenge - Challenge 55 - Anything goes
7.Craft Your Passion Challenge - Challenge 257 - Anything goes
8.Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - 3 of something (rolled flowers)
9.Everybody Art Challenge - Challenge 320 - Pearls
10.Fantastic Tuesday Challenge - Challenge 81 - Anything goes - add some pearls

Products used are:
Black card
Black lace
Black ruffled fabric
Pink ribbon
Pearls
Cheery Lynn flourish die
Rolled flowers (tutorial here)
Pro/flexmarkers
Doily
Distress tool

A close up of the fabulous image.

and a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by,
Lotsa Hugs
Nic.
