Spots, dots and diecuts

This card sees quite a change in colour scheme for me. I usually end up playing with my bright papers. I wanted to do something more muted this time and as I couldn't decide between pink or blue I used both. The image is from the Jellypark store (store closed for the moment but should be open in a week or so). The backing paper, paper ribbon and flowers are from the polkadoodles Magical Winter cd's. I used my trusty promarkers to colour the image. I layered up some scrap papers, die cut the edges then paper pieced them together and punched through with a decorative corner punch. I die cut some circles to mount the flowers on. I put some big chunky gems in the centre of each flower and a gorgy pearl in each corner and voila.
