Heres looking at you...

A lot of reflection on this card from the holographic card but this is the best I can do.....
A lady wanted a card with an old Movie star on but with flowers! Not that easy so this is what I have come up with.  Image I found on the net..backing papers are from Paper Cellar and I have used one of my new dies the Cheery Lynn Flourish leaf strip, Cuttlebug Wicker weave embossing folder used along the side..just added a 3 rose which aren't bright white but it all I had....hope she likes it!

We have sunshine and blue skies down here in Somerset this morning..hope you all have a good week end..

Hi Anne, Super card, it fulfills the criteria beautifully, Bogart was a real star and your flowers are subtle enough to fit perfectly, Gay x

Lorraine said...

I think you've done a fabulous job of mixing the two criteria. The photo is just fab and the flowers look great without being too much!

Anne what a wonderful card! Always did love Boggie and his movies especially African Queen. This is a stunning card and I'm sure the lady will be thrilled with it. So glad I finally figured out how to look at your cards - I'm just a little slow sometimes but I made it.
