A Different Shape

Evening, sometimes you just have to go with it, I'd shared that I was having a bit of a creative blip, I now know why,
I was putting myself under too much pressure, leaving the cards that I needed too late so that I HAD to create instead of giving myself time to get creative.
That was how I felt when I made this card, Under Pressure, especially as it was for a lovely friend who often orders cards from me.
I'm not entirely pleased with this but I have to tell you, that I have now got several cards ready to share and let's just warn you in advance that there's a lot of Patchwork involved!
Anyway, this little card has an embossed background which I highlighted by running round the edges of the circles with a clear glitter "Gelly Roll Pen", it doesn't show too well but it's sparklicious!  Hand cut bunting ,some new dies and some Prima flowers from a long neglected hoard and some large flat backed pearls.
 

 
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
ATC26, Anything goes +sentiment,
Fairytale 54, Embossing,
Fussy and Fancy 75, Pearls and flowers,
SCT26, Use stash,
CYPC135, Hexagons.
 
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
