Floral Delight Too take 2 and a new product

Good morning afternoon. I'm a bit late but hopefully it will be worth it as I've got a card to show you for the Flower and Embossing challenge and a new product :-D 

As I kinda got the challenge wrong last week (thanks for all that pointed it out hmph!) I thought I'd better get back into my sweatshop workshop and put it right!  I received another commission...this time for a 91st birthday card and I knew one of the Floral Delight Too images would be perfect :-D

 I was inspired by Julie's card last week so I got down to business and printed and colored Tulip Watering Can with my Copics. I love all the flourishes that are about and own two or three but never seem to be able to add them to a card with total satisfaction...until now ;-D I embossed part of the white card stock with a swirly folder (think it's Sizzix) and stitched a border. A bit of mounting, ribbon and a sentiment and Bob's your uncle...job done! you thought I forgot the chance lol. I added Glamour Dust to the flowers and Glossy Accents to the Ladybugs.

You can see the GD and just about make out the GA on the ladybug

I added a double felt heart and pearl to the inside and I've been told the girl who ordered the card loved it...just hope her grandma does too :-D

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Card Mania - Happy Birthday
House of Gilli - Anything Goes
Lollipop Crafts - Happy Birthday
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
My Craft Spot - Embossing
My Grafico - Anything Goes

I mentioned a new product...well here they are...fabulicious nailheads! I've been threatening to put these on the website for a while now but Julie posted a gorgeous card today you can see here using them so had to get my skates on. Believe it or not Julie had NEVER heard of nailheads before ... go figure????

There are 5 gorgeous colors...pale turquoise, pale pink, gunmetal, green and red. You get 7.5 ml in each bag and they sell for £1.50 each. I don't know the exact amount but there are hundreds to keep you busy :-D They are hot fix so you can use your Kandi Kane or glue to stick them.

I've used the pale pink nailheads on this card for my sister

That's it from me for today...thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x

Two fabulous cards, the new watering can image looks great love the colours you have used and I also love the arrow with the nailheads on, what a brilliant idea.
I bought a sewing machine over 2 years agao so I could try stitching on a card and while it is out of it's box, it has not been taken out of the draw I stored it is.

WOW - very, very pretty card; love the soft lilac. I own one flourish, given to me as a gift - I've NEVER used it. Love, love, love them...but have never bought any. :-/

Kandi Kane? WHAT???

I like those nail heads - interesting name for them; I need to place an order - you should make a combo color bag. :D
