The scent of a vintage rose

Well I am posting this on my new laptop and I think I need lessons lol. Talk about frustration.
It's this new windows 7, I'm used to the old windows XP lol. Can't fault the laptop though, it's great, wish I had bought one before now.

Anyway enough of my waffling. I have made this card for my friend Sheryl, it's her mums birthday soon. I have used this image from a day for daisies called the scent of a vintage rose, she is coloured in with promarkers and I added pearls to the center of the flowers, matted to some pink CS and hand stitched around the edge. The DP is from first edition and dovecraft, I added a doily, some lace, tulle, some hand made pins, photo corners and that gorgeous flower, with some big metal spacers and pearl brad and the charm dangling down, just love the way this card came out.

By the way I have learnt the basics of crochet and you will be seeing a flower I have made on one of my cards soon, I'm so excited I've been wanted to learn for ages as the flowers are so expensive to buy. 

Hope you all have a good night

I am entering this card into the A day for daisies challenge - crazy for calico
